A loan of $350 helped to purchase firewood, cosmetics and lotions.


Maria Socorro's story

My name is Maria Socorro and I have a small business selling firewood, cosmetics and lotions from my home. This business has allowed me to take care of my family and to generate enough income to help cover my family's living expenses.



This business has been a blessing and has helped improve my family's financial situation. I am requesting this loan to purchase additional firewood, cosmetics and lotions for resale.
