Yamileth Del Socorro's story

Yamileth is a 32-year-old mother of three children. She is an inhabitant of the city of Granada and works as a merchant.

She expressed to us her gratitude for the positive change that her loan generated. She noticed an improvement in sales, as she was able to buy more products to sell and she feels that her business is progressing, little by little.

She now requires a second loan to buy basic grains, canned goods, seasonings, tomato sauce, and cleaning products. With this new investment, she thinks she can increase her sales, so that her business will propser and allow her to get a wider variety of products, as well as help her move forward with her family.
