Jenny Del Carmen's story

Jenny is a 29-year-old woman. She lives in the Villa Venezuela neighborhood, which is an area with a lot of poverty and crime. She is married and does not yet have children.

She is studying to be a doctor and, at the same time, she makes a living by running a small grocery store. This is her only way of generating income, and she pays for her classes and household expenses with the money that she earns. She requests this loan to invest in the products that are in high demand by the people in her neighborhood.
