A loan of $825 helped to buy more clothing and jewelry.


Nelly Del Socorro's story

Nelly M. is from the city of Medellín. For 20 years she has been selling merchandise as a source of income. She is single and lives with her mother who is over 80. She is able to care for her thanks to the earnings from her business.

She sells her goods door-to-door to customers who are distributed throughout the different parts of the city and on many occasions the heavy rainfall keeps her from being able to work. But Nelly is very enterprising and plans to use the loan to buy more clothing and jewelry so she can offer a wider variety of products and increase her customer base and income.
