Lucía Del Socorro's story

Lucía del Socorro V. J.'s smile shows the happiness she puts into life, although for her it hasn't been easy to be a mother and head of household in a family with 3 children. Her striving, dedication, and eagerness to get ahead have allowed her to work hard to improve her and her family's quality of life. Lucía struggles tirelessly and many years ago she got to know the temporary employment, lottery, liquor and wholesale merchandise law. This enterprising woman started various jobs with the purpose of getting ahead with her family. Later, Lucía opened a hardware store where she works from 12:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. Although her day is long, Lucía is convinced that this is the only way she can accomplish her dream of having a hardware store known not only in the neighborhood, but in the city as well. In this way, she will offer a good future to her family. At present, this enterprising woman needs a loan to buy a variety of products and to buy cell phones that will allow her to increase the sale of minutes that will bring in more income.
