A loan of $1,700 helped to buy a cooler.


Edith Del Socorro's story

Edith, 53, says that she’s enjoyed sales since she was young. She’s been working in this activity for 12 years when she decided to start selling packaged snacks and soft-drinks at home. Thanks to the good welcome she had, her customers suggested she expand her variety of goods in stock and she agreed. Today, it’s become a full store. She works every day from 7 in the morning to 8 at night. With this activity’s development, Edith has been able to provide her four children with better educational opportunities which fills her with satisfaction and pride because this was her greatest life challenge.

Today, she’s asking for a loan to buy a cooler because the one she has is in bad shape and consumes too much electricity. This will make it possible for her to save on energy costs and generate higher profits.
