Cira Del Socorro's story

Cira del Socorro, age 60, is known in her community as a woman who works hard to get her family ahead. She has worked all of her life in different fields that have allowed her to acquire experience to set up her own business.

Thanks to the savings that she managed to accumulate working as a domestic employee, she was able to put her idea about her business to work. She started selling food in an itinerant manner on the streets of her municipality. Later, she set up her business at a small rented place.

Her greatest wish is to be able to improve her quality of life and to buy a place that will allow her to reduce her fixed costs. She dreams of being able to offer her grandchildren better educational opportunities. The lack of resources to have access to a good education makes it increasingly important.

Cira wants to get ahead and get better opportunities for her family. That is why she is requesting a loan to buy basic food items. She will do this in order to increase her production capacity for the end of the year season. This way she will be able to generate greater income.
