Francisca Del Socorro
Every day Francisca works in her own business, where she sells baked items. This is how she makes an income for her daily subsistence and to support her household, since having children means a constant struggle to get ahead. Five years ago she made a decision to become a businesswoman to make an income for her household, since subsistence was getting more and more difficult. This loan will be used for basic materials that she needs for her business. Francisca hopes to increase her sales and increase her familial income.
