A loan of $1,400 helped to purchase merchandise (lingerie).


Soraida Del Socorro's story

41-year-old Soraida unfortunately lost her husband, a misfortune that motivated her to seek her own source of income as she has three young children and therefore a lot of expenses to meet. She works in the clothing industry from Monday to Saturday however her income is not sufficient to provide education for her children, so in her free time she also sells lingerie from a catalog.

Soraida is now requesting a loan to invest in merchandise for the end-of-year season, in order to improve her income and be able to give her children a happy Christmas. Her dreams are to start her own business, spend more time with her family and improve her economic status and quality of life.
