A loan of $1,200 helped to buy a sewing machine.


Nubia Del Socorro's story

Nubia del Socorro is 60 years old. She is a small business owner who has worked hard, and with sacrifice and dedication, has managed to assemble her workshop. She works Monday to Sunday from 8am to 5pm. She employs two of her neighbors.

Her biggest dream is to be able to expand her business and to generate more jobs, because she is convinced that this will help to improve the economic status of several women that need it.

She is currently requesting a loan to buy a sewing machine to improve the quality of service and to increase production.
