A loan of $600 helped to purchase construction materials for her house.


Idelma Del Socorro's story

Idelma is married and her children are students. Her hope for the family is that each of her children will embark on a career, so that they can fend for themselves in life. Idelma helps her husband financially, providing an additional income. She has her own business as a self-employed seamstress, and has been working for a long time. She has never experienced any difficulties with her business. Idelma started the business from her own funds, by making products and selling them. The project is to improve the infrastructure of their home. This loan will be used to purchase construction materials such as cement and sand, slates for the entrance, welding equipment, purlins, and other materials needed for the construction of the porch. This will bring her family security and comfort.
