A loan of $800 helped pay for maintenance of a vehicle.


Carolina's story

Carolina is 37 years old and has one young child. She earns her living by making and selling bread and cakes. She has a bakery which is located in the Patuju area. She is a long-standing customer of the institution and her previous loans were all to improve her business. Carolina will use this loan to maintain her vehicle since it has already had a few faults and it is what she uses to deliver her products. Carolina is a person with a desire for self-improvement. She is happy with and grateful to the institution for the help they have given her, as this is the only way she is able to make a living.
