Andrea Del Socorro
Mrs. Andrea Del Socorro has a small grocery, which she runs out of her house. She has two dependent children. She started her business six years ago selling snacks for children. Little by little she reinvested her profits in her business and started buying basic grains, which are the highest selling products. When she started the business her goal was to find an alternative way to provide for her children; however, her business has helped her improve her life. Now her children have the chance to study. Currently she is applying for a loan to purchase more merchandise, principally basic grains, so that she can sell more both on cash and credit. She dreams of having a large business in the market which would allow her to provide for her entire family.
