A loan of $1,650 helped to buy shoes.


María Del Socorro's story

María, age 52, is known for being a tenacious woman. Her family is her fundamental pillar and her greatest motivation to seek better opportunities in life. She is married and has four children.

In addition to the domestic work this woman does, she also sells shoes. At the beginning she started her business activity from her house. However, due to the increase is her customers, she saw the need to rent a place for direct sales. She has now been working in her business for over six years.

Thanks to her business, the quality of life in her household has improved considerably. She feels that sharing the expenses with her husband has allowed them to unite as a family. This makes her feel satisfied and grateful.

She is now requesting a loan to buy shoes. She will do this in order to have inventory for the Holy Week celebrations. She hopes that her sales will increase with this investment and that the quality of her life continues to improve.
