Ramona Del Socorro's story

Ramona Del Socorro is 65 years old and makes a living selling cosmetics. She has worked in this business for more than 11 years, and her work is how she provides for her family each day. She sells her products as a street vendor and has managed to obtain many customers in this way. Her customers treat her with much affection—they call her Monchita, since she always makes them feel happy. She used to work in the mayor’s office, but left that job because she needed to bring in more income for her household. Her wish is to have another source of income. The loan is for working capital, which Ramona will use to purchase talcum powder, creams, colognes, perfumes, and makeup.
