Damaris Del Socorro's story

Damaris del Socorro S. S. lives in the Laureles Sur neighborhood. She’s married and has 6 children, two of whom are adult and live independently and four that still depend on their parents. Her husband is a security guard and contributes to household expenses.

She works hauling merchandise among the stalls in the Oriental market, specifically in the hardware section; she has a crew that work for her.
In her daily experiences in the Oriental market she has noticed that there is a need to open a café that would offer fast food and refreshments. This is a goal for the near future.

In order to accomplish this, she needs to increase her hauling orders so she is asking for funds to buy a used pick-up truck that would help her increase her monthly income so that she can plan to open her café.

She would appreciate funding that would daily improve her income leading to subsequent improvement of living conditions for herself and her entire family.
