A loan of $650 helped to buy clothes and shoes.


Vicenta Del Socorro's story

Vicenta is 44 years old and lives in the 380 barrio, where the population is very poor. Vicenta is married; her husband works as a tradesman. Both of them work a lot to help their children - now independent adults - to move forward in life. Vicenta is looking to progress with her business. She makes a living selling clothes and footwear and this loan will be used to invest in this little business. The loan will allow her to maintain her income to buy the bare necessities.
