A loan of $750 helped to stock her store.


Mirella Del Socorro's story

Mirella is 44 years old, married, and the mother of a son whom she has been tirelessly striving to get ahead. She has been selling merchandise via catalog and got this idea out of a need to generate income to pay her household expenses; her husband had lost his job and she didn’t have any other alternative. Little by little she saved up and set up a grocery store in her home, but the sales decreased and her business shrank, but she has been able to continue with her catalog sales and continues with a small inventory. Mirella is asking for this loan so she can buy inventory in quantity (cakes, grains, soft drinks, dairy, etc.). This will allow her to strengthen her inventory and improve not only her image, but also her sales. Mirella wants to level off both businesses, sustain her family and help her husband with the household finances. This will provide her family with a better quality of life and improve their wellbeing.
