Agustina del Socorro is an energetic businessperson. She sells new clothing. She goes out weekly to sell as a street vendor in the country's departments. She has her loyal clientele, which she visits constantly. In the photo we see her with some of the merchandise she sells.

She is asking our institution for the loan in order to invest in her house. She will purchase materials to reinforce a wall with the goal of securing her house. The wall currently needs to be repaired since it is incomplete, because in the future it will cost her more to repair it. She used the previous loan to purchase more merchandise (a variety of new clothing). She is thankful to Ceprodel and Kiva for the opportunity and the confidence placed in her.
