Yamilet Del Socorro's story

At the age of 49, Yamilet has been working for 18 years selling snacks from place to place because of the difficult economic situation she’s in that’s even more difficult now because of her spouse’s state of health. He has cancer and needs specialized care and expenses have increased. With six children to care for, this woman deserves admiration and respect because despite her circumstances she’s not retreated and she’s clear that with effort it’s possible to move her family forward. Today, she’s asking for a loan to buy an assortment of snacks and to repair the cart she uses to transport her goods. Her greatest wish is to improve her family’s quality of life and forget economic needs.
