Marbellí Del Socorro's story

Marbellí is a woman who tries to find ways to get ahead in life. Her children are growing up and the eldest already helps his father work as a lathe operator in a machine shop. The other two devote themselves completely to their studies. Marbellí continues selling cosmetics and currently she's experimenting with being a stylist.

She's requesting the loan to build a room for the welfare of her children. The space where they live is very uncomfortable for everyone, so it's necessary to make this improvement in her home.
