Marcia Del Socorro's story

Marcia del Socorro is an older woman with four children who are all grown up. She is originally from the city of Chinandega, located in the west of the country.

She is known for being hardworking and responsible, with a goal of self-improvement. In her free time, she likes enjoying music from her time, as well as the company of her grandchildren.

Unfortunately, due to a lack of resources and the poverty she lived in, she was not able to complete her studies, and had to go work from a young age to help with household expenses.

Thanks to her efforts and her desire to get ahead, this microentrepreneur earns her living buying and selling general merchandise, such as various types of clothing, cosmetics and shoes among others. She also has a general store located in her house where she offers products for household consumption, such as staple grains and frozen products, among others.

Marcia starts her days very early, offering her products and general merchandise, so she can earn a better income in the not-too-distant future.

The goal of this loan is for working capital to stock her business: various styles of clothing, shoes, cosmetics, frozen products, staple grains, sweets and others to deliver new products to her clients.
