A loan of $450 helped to buy building materials.

Mercedes Del Socorro's story

Mercedes has a small food business where she sells a variety of dishes such as grilled meat, enchiladas, sliced ripe and green plantains, drinks, and soft drinks, among other things.

She’s had this business for three years and it’s been growing thanks to the five loan cycles that Afodenic has provided. This has allowed her to invest into her business as well as into her home.

She will use the money from this loan to buy building materials in order to add a bathroom and improve the sanitary conditions in her home. She is happy to able to provide a better roof over her family’s head.
