Carmen Marlene's story

Carmen, 45, is married and lives with her husband. She has been making and selling rosquillas [ring-shaped snacks made with corn and cheese] for three years. Carmen works as a street vendor. She visits nearby communities and makes all kinds of bakery products, such as puff pastry, bread, rosquillas, etc. She feels happy for the support she is about to receive. Carmen has many customers that buy her products and demand every time more from her, since they prefer her delicious rosquillas.

Carmen is requesting a loan to buy ingredients such as corn, curd, milk, sugar, flour, oil and coffee. With the support she receives through this loan and the profits from her business, she will get ahead and her business will improve. Carmen’s dream is to improve her business and turn it into the strongest business in town.
