A loan of $550 helped to buy supplies for her food catering business.


Maritza Del Socorro's story

Maritza operates a food catering business. She's owned the business for more than 10 years and it's proof of just how responsible a businesswoman she is. She started the business because she needed an income to pay her bills. She likes working and she can pay her own way because she's always lived modestly. Maritza is applying for a loan so that she can buy supplies--vegetables, cooking utensils, firewood, etc.--for her business. Although she faces challenges--terrible pain in her knees, for example, that make her sick--she knows that she has to get up every day to work and make the money she needs to live.
