Adiela Del Socorro's story

Adiela is a single mother, head of household since the father of her son abandoned them some time ago. In order to generate household income she had a job up to a few weeks ago but then she lost the job and for a few days was able to support her household with savings she had. Thanks to being very disciplined her savings gave her economic stability for a few days.

Seeing the need to have a job she visualized the opportunity of having her own business since there is only one ice-cream shop in her town and service is very bad there. This is how she opened her own ice-cream shop with some of her savings and by buying some items on credit.

The business has been open for about a week and thanks to the good service she provides sales have been very good which is why she’s looking for a loan to buy supplies she’s run out of and also to finish paying off the items she bought on credit.

In his way she will finish setting up her business and start to operate in it better starting to generate income needed for her home and providing her son with a good quality of life. Her greatest dream is to give her son a university education and to have good economic stability that will allow them to make progress.
