A loan of $1,100 helped to purchase merchandise for her shop and meet customer demand.


Sorangel's story

Dedication and love for her family are the best ways to describe Sorangel, a woman who at age 52 has always looked for a way to help her 4 children and husband to get the best quality of life possible. Since her last pregnancy almost 20 years ago, Sorangel launched her general store, and thanks to this business, she has been able to cover the household expenses. Because her business has been successful, her products have been running considerably low, which is why Sorangel needs to purchase more products. However, she does not have the necessary capital, which is why she hopes that with this loan, she will be able to restock her shop with the merchandise that her customers always ask for. Sorangel hopes that with a well-stocked shop, sales will increase and in so doing, so will her profits. Thus, she will be able to obtain her dream of providing her children with financial stability in the future, and that they will be able to gain access to the best education possible.
