Carmen's story

Carmen is the mother of three children, all of whom are in her care. One of them was born with a different capacity, and she therefore needs to give him special care; he is twenty-one years old. She and her husband work to cover the home expenses. Carmen continues with her small grocery store, which is located in her house. She also makes tortillas in order to balance the home expenses.

Presently, she needs to invest in more products for her business because she currently doesn't have a lot of inventory. She cannot ignore this because the store provides daily sustenance for her family. For this reason, she is requesting a loan that she will use to buy basic food items, carbonated beverages, milk products, canned items, and products for cleaning, home, and personal use. All of the mentioned items are based on the demand of her customers, who are her neighbors.
