A loan of $600 helped to buy more vegetables and expand her business.


Vilma Del Carmen's story

Vilma is 55 years old. She has a sixth-grade education. She is married, and her husband is a farmer. She has one child who goes to the community school.

Vilma works selling vegetables in the city. She has already been doing this work for 15 years. She decided to get started in this business because the majority of her family earns their livings the same way.

She needs the loan to expand her business; she will buy more vegetables and be able to meet her needs with the sales.

Vilma dreams of making her business larger and being able to give her son an education so that he can become a professional.
