Haydee Del Socorro's story

Haydee is 44 years old, married and has two children. Both of her children go to school, one to secondary school and the other attends the university. She has a few types of businesses run out of her home, as she is looking for a way to make a living. She has a dry goods store called "Enabas" which is stocked by the government for low-cost re-sale to the people. She also has a bicycle repair shop in her home, where her son and her husband work. In addition, Haydee makes fried foods in her home in the afternoons. Haydee gets up very early every day and closes up late, so she can tend to her customers and offer them excellent customer service. She started her business because of her family's needs and as a way to help out in her home. Haydee has been supplying the people with quality products for twenty years. At this time, she is requesting a loan to purchase dry goods: sweets, matches, salt, rice, sugar, coffee, beans, soap, detergents and other products. Haydee is very happy about and grateful for the opportunity she is being offered to invest in her business. The number of customers she has, has increased, and she hopes to meet her customers demands.
