Marcia Del Socorro's story

Marcia Del Socorro is 45 years old. She is married with two adult children, 24 and 20 years old and independent. Originally from Chichigalpa, she is the owner of a business that sells basic grains in the central market of this city. She makes her purchases in cash at distributors in wholesale, and also at threshers and/or hullers. She makes her sales in cash and in the harvest season, she provides her goods in cash and credit to regular and occasional customers. She recently acquired another place to expand her business.

She tells us that thanks to the support, she has managed to increase her business more and therefore offer better products to her customers. She is requesting funding to buy basic grains, like rice, sugar, corn, beans, and oil, and soap, among others.
