Carmen's story

Carmen is 52 years old. She has two children and lives with her partner.

For 10 years, she has had a small business in her home in which she sells fruit, vegetables, and grains, among others. With the experience acquired and in light of the difficult economic situation, she dreams of having an independent and larger store and to supply it.

With the loan, she will purchase supplies wholesale, which generate better profits. In this way, she will be able to offer a great variety of good quality products to her customers at better prices. She will soon obtain the savings to move to a store, and things for herself and her family will be greatly satisfactory.
