Carmenza is a single mother living in Magangue, Colombia, with her three children. Here she owns a farm where she works with chicken, pigs, and cows. Thanks to her hard work on the farm, Carmenza was able to convert the second floor of her home to an apartment to rent out as an additional source of income with the hope of covering all the household expenses. Carmenza has faced some issues with the apartment and was unable to rent it for some time. Some changes needed to be made, but she didn't have the funds to make it possible. When an Opportunity International staff member told her about the loans and training, she could receive, Carmenza knew it was exactly the assistance she needed to finish the apartment. After making the fixes, she will be able to rent the apartment, and improve her financial stability. With her household expenses covered thanks to the rent from the apartment, Carmenza is looking toward the future and hopes to improve her family's quality of life.
