Rocio Aracely's story

Rocio is 49 years old and lives in Primavera, Duran. This is a settlement on the outskirts of the city which was originally established without official authorization. There are several hills, streams and lakes which are still present as the remains of a broken ecology. Rocio is single and owns a store.

Rocio started working with one of her sisters. She closed her business and so Rocio decided to set herself up in another place and made gradual progress. She works alone in her store from 8.00am to 10.00pm, selling food products to her customers. With the help of this loan, she would like to buy more merchandise with which to stock her business. In the future, she would like to finish building her home.
