Maria Del Carmen is from Mexico. She has 2 children. She needs a loan of $475 to expand her store and stock it with more groceries: tuna, bleach, toilet paper, diapers, soups, sugar, soap, oil, sodas, etc. .
Mrs. Carmen is 51 years old; she is a single mother and she lives with two of her nephews: Alexis, who is 10 years old, and Alan, who is 9. Both her nephews are in elementary school. Carmen is asking for a loan to invest into her grocery store. She needs to buy such items as tuna, bleach, toilet paper, diapers, soups, sugar, soap, oil and sodas.
Mrs. Carmen is hardworking and does well. She inherited the store from her mother and she's been working there for 26 years. Her goal is to expand her business, to have more space, because sometimes she doesn’t have enough room for all her merchandise. This World Vision loan will help her expand and stock her grocery store.
Part of her income will be spent helping her nephews improve their quality of education; she loves them as if they were her own. She also buys many of her supplies from many other Zitacuaro stores which helps the local economy.
