A loan of $425 helped to buy corn, beans, and fruit.


Mercedes Del Socorro's story

As a single mother, Doña Mercedes was able to get her children ahead. Now, they are all independent. She now works only for herself and hopes to be able to leave a decent home to her children. She works full-time in her business selling tortillas, drinks, and baked beans. She has had this business for many years. She is requesting her fourth loan so that she can keep investing in her business. She will purchase corn, beans and fruit for the drinks. She will take advantage of the summer season, since these items are sold a great deal because of the heat. This will allow her to continue with her only source of income.
