Nemesia Del Socorro's story

Nemesia Del Socorro is 40 years old. She has 3 children who depend on her. Her business is the sale of hotdogs and soft drinks. She has had this business for more than 3 years. She decided on this line of work because it is one of the most profitable sources of income and she enjoys the work. Nemesia's goal in terms of her business is to improve client service because there are some clients that do not receive the attention they deserve. The loan she requests will be used as working capital and it will be invested in the purchase of bags, hotdogs, bread, soft drinks, and plates. Her greatest dream is to improve the quality of her life and that of her children.
