Karla Vanessa's story

Karla is 38 years and is the single mother of two school-aged children. She has a college degree in international relations, but due to a lack of employment she started a small grocery store business, thanks to her mother's support. This is the first loan she has requested to invest in buying basic products for the business and in this way she will be able to offer more products to her customers.
