A loan of $425 helped to buy bales of secondhand clothing and shoes.


Concepcion Del Socorro's story

Doña Concepción has a business that involves selling used clothes. This has allowed her to help her children get ahead. Her children are now adults who help her financially and with the physical labor. In addition, Concepción has always had the support of her husband who works abroad as a security guard.


With this new loan, Concepción will buy more bales of secondhand clothing and shoes. Her plans are to continue working, but with her own funds. She is grateful for the support that AFODENIC and Kiva have provided. This will be her fourth loan and it will help her grow in her trade, which enabled her to pay for the education, food, and clothing costs that helped her children get ahead.
