Rubiela Del Socorro's story
Rubiela is 54 years old. She is a woman whom life has taught the significance of work and responsibility. After separating from her husband, she saw the need to seek a source of employment to support and raise her son. She turned to raising pigs, selling products via catalog, and selling merchandise. These activities are the source of the income for her home. Today she is asking for a loan to buy a pig and clothing merchandise so she can increase her sales and generate more income. Her biggest dream is to be able to buy a house, since renting is one of the expenses that gives her the biggest headache. Although money hasn't been her best friend, she fights day to day to offer her family a dignified life that doesn't lack financially. What matters to her most is unity and love.
