A loan of $575 helped working capital: general store.


Mauricia Del Socorro's story

Mauricia del Socorro, 63, started her general store more than 3 years ago. She has tried many things to improve her family's economic stability; she previously sold clothing, but had many difficulties and was not able to spend much time with her family. Because she did not have much money, she decided to invest her savings in supplies and sell them to her neighbours. Little by little her store has been growing, and although she does not have many products she continues working to expand her inventory. She sells rice, sugar, oil, etc.
With the requested loan, she wants to buy supplies such as rice, sugar and oils for her store. She dreams of completing certain home repairs.
