A loan of $1,200 helped to buy clothing, shoes, slippers, and Christmas decorations.


Martha Del Socorro's story

Martha, age 48, is a merchant and has a small store. She lives in Leon. She is the single mother of two independent children. She inherited her store from her mother, who gave her the business so that she could support her children. Martha is a single mother and her mother is her only support. She is now the owner and administrator of the store, which has grown bit by bit. Through this business, she has been able to provide for her children and ensure that they never went hungry. She is taking out this loan for the purchase of clothing, shoes, slippers, Christmas decorations, and other products to sell so that she can improve her service and offer more products to her customers. She tells us that she also plans to buy a new freezer and two display cases for her business, so that she can improve bit by bit.
