A loan of $825 helped to buy fabric.


Lilia Del Socorro's story

Lila de Socorro is 45 years old and sells clothes making supplies in different neighborhoods in Antioquia, Colombia. She worked with her father in developing the business but he passed away a few months ago. This left Lilia in charge of the business.

She says that she has always been attracted to sales and after having separated from her husband and having a son to support, she decided to ask her father for work. Now that she has inherited the business, she is asking for a loan so she can buy fabric to satisfy her customer demand.

She expects that this loan will allow her to improve her family’s quality of life and provide her son the opportunity to begin a higher education.
