Margarita Del Socorro's story

Margarita, at 62 years old, still has the energy to work and earn her living. Four years ago, she opened a small grocery store with a little capital; it is located in the house where she lives. Little by little, she has augmented her inventory and now she is well-known in the area. This is how she generates sufficient income to pay for her basic household expenses.

Margarita works alone every day with the intention of improving her living conditions and having the possibility of buying her own house in the future. In addition, she dreams of expanding her business, which is why she requested the help of this loan.

With the loan, she will buy an assortment of products at wholesale (snacks, cookies, chocolate, dairy products, cold deli meats), which will allow her to offer more variety to her customers to satisfy their different tastes and needs. This will be reflected in an increase in sales and income so that she can enjoy her old age in tranquility, free of worry.
