Carmen Edith's story

57-year old Carmen is from a humble background. She tells us that she is a hardworking woman, keen to make progress in life. Household chores have always been a big part of her life as even as a child she had to help her mother prepare food. Later on she earned her living working in a restaurant. With this experience and a desire for a better future, Carmen managed to start her own business selling meals. In order to improve service and continue growing her business, she is now seeking a loan to buy everyday food items. Her dream is to have her own premises and open a large restaurant.
