Carmen Elena's story

Carmen is applying for a new loan to purchase more beauty salon equipment. She will purchase two hair irons and two shelves to display various beauty products. She used the previous loan to diversify the beauty products that she offered to her customers. She has her own business location, has increased her income, kept her customers, and gained new customers. Her financial situation has changed. Today, her family is in better health and has adequate food, and she continues working to further expand her business..
