Concepcion's story

Concepcion is 47 years old, and the mother of three children. She lives with them in a house which she was able to construct, at much sacrifice, while forced into the role of mother and father in her home.

For ten years now she has worked for various entities, public and private, where she acquired experience and improved her performance. For the last several months, she has been processing gas at an enterprise where she works every day, from 9 in the morning to 5 in the afternoon. But what Concepcion wants is to have her own business, and for that, her goal is to prepare her house to contain a store, which will bear her name. This is why she works with much joy, performing her best as an employee, and with this goal she will continue to work many hours in this enterprise.

She has had 13 loans with PRISMA Microfinance, and these have permitted her to improve her condition of life, just like her companions in the community bank, which is now seven years old. With this $850 loan Concepcion will buy merchandise for the opening of her grocery store.
