A loan of $700 helped to buy stock merchandise for her store.


Norma Del Carmen's story

Norma del Carmen continues striving to make her business grow by means of loans. She started the business with just a few basic staples for her neighborhood customers. She’s her husband’s right hand; he works in construction. They both share household expenses and their three children’s schooling costs. The children are 19, 14 and 10 years of age and attend public schools.

She’s asking for the loan to stock her store with the following products: beef, chicken, pork, soft-drinks, sugar, rice, beans and oil. In future, she plans to have a larger stand in one of the capital’s markets because her house doesn’t have much space.
