Unfortunately, her husband’s construction work in Mexico City is only temporary. Carmen has been selling costume jewelry, hair bands, hair slides, threads and needles for 5 years in the local market in order to bring in additional income. The biggest challenge Carmen faces is not having her own premises where she can sell her goods. Because of this she is restricted in selling her wears in the market and must keep walking around, making it difficult to make sales. This makes it difficult for her to continue investing in her business because she has to use what profits she makes to purchase food first. With a loan from World Vision, Carmen wants to invest in her business by purchasing more, better quality fashion accessories in order to bring in more sales. With enough profits, she hopes to afford her own store in the center of the community where there are many people and her business will thrive.
