Bercelly Del Socorro's story

Bercelly is a single mother who heads her family of two children as their father left them some time ago. This means that Bercelly must support her children in all their expenses and guarantee them a good quality of life. Bercelly previously received financial support from her children's father but some time ago she stopped receiving this support. For this reason, she would now like to set up a business selling vegetables with the aim of making enough income to support her household. She would like to equip part of her home for her vegetable store so that she can be there for her children. As she doesn't have enough capital to set up her business, she hopes to receive a loan which will give her the opportunity to buy vegetables and some shelving in order to start out.

Bercelly hopes that she will be able to guarantee her income and improve her current living conditions. She would also like to be able to offer her two children a better quality of life and better opportunities to make progress. She dreams of her children having a good-quality education and becoming professionals who are known for their humanity.
