A loan of $1,675 helped to make some changes to her work space and to buy a stainless steel table and a sheet pan rack.


Doris Del Socorro's story

Doris is 60 years old. Her business is making and selling arepas and it has enabled her to support both herself and her six children since her husband left her. Doris gets up very early every morning and starts her work making arepas which she sells in her area. In this way, she makes the income she needs to cover her household expenses. Doris is requesting this loan to make some changes to her work space. She will also buy a stainless steel table and a sheet pan rack so that she can increase her production capacity and improve her income. She hopes that her business will allow her to save up enough money to buy her home and to improve her quality of life.
