Pilar Del Socorro's story

Pilar S. is 44 years old, and has dedicated herself to selling plastic bags at the local market for 12 years. Before starting this business she earned a living by selling honey and gourd seeds. She started her enterprise at the suggestion of an aunt, who was also in this line of business.

Pilar is a single mother with 2 children who she supports in their studies. She has been working with Ceprodel since 2006 and, to date, she has been granted 16 loans that she has invested into her business. This help has allowed her to improve her standard of living, and the loans have been a great help to her.
