A loan of $575 helped to buy basic household products so that she can increase her stock.


Lucero Del Socorro's story

Lucero is a person who is noted for being very hard-working and always wanting to provide her customers with a good service in her store. She has been widowed for some time and now lives with her mother and a sister. Lucero saw that she needed to make her own income and so she set up a general store where she sells basic household products. The store is very well known in her area thanks to the good service that she provides. Thanks to this, her sales have been good. Lucero has gradually increased the range of merchandise that she offers in her store. She would currently like to increase the range of goods that she offers even further as her customers are asking for certain products that she does not have. For this reason, she is looking for a loan which will enable her to buy basic household products so that she can increase her range of products. Lucero hopes that her sales will continue to increase and that she will be able to offer her mother and her sister a better quality of life. She also dreams of being able to create jobs for people who need income but don't have any work opportunities.
