Gioconda's story

Gioconda lives in Concepcion de Maria barrio, a zone where the residents have scarce resources. She is a working mother who with much work and effort has offered the basics to her children, including food. Now they are adults and they aid her.

Gioconda sells a variety of things, including tortillas, clothing, and cosmetics, among other things, to meet the expenses that are always there. The loan she requests is to be invested in foot ware, cosmetics and clothing that she will attempt to sell, because this is the only way she has of earning a living, with the aid of her husband.
