A loan of $475 helped provide her business and offer a better service.

Rocío's story

Rocío is a very hard-working woman who is married and has a son that lives with her and her husband. Her husband is a merchant at the flea markets, and for that reason he gets unstable incomes. That is why they decided to start their own fixed business and they attend to it personally, since they don\\\'t have employees.

Her clients have been increasing lately, so she needs a work capital to be able to provide more of her products and get better prices. She needs your support of $475 USD to have more supplies for her business and offer a better service to her clients. She plans to repay the loan within 5-10 months.
