A loan of $575 helped operating capital to buy beans, rice, oil, chicken, and sodas.


Maritza Del Socorro's story

Maritza del Socorro is 67 years old. This is not her first experience dealing with loans. She has been selling food and other items for more than nine years. Maritza started her business using her own resources. Even though the work can be difficult, she says her business is very rewarding because it has allowed her to improve her family’s condition.

Maritza will use her loan to buy beans, rice, oil, chicken, and sodas since the prices of these items are very inexpensive. What she wants most is to improve her business every day and keep it active.
