Amparo Del Socorro's story

Amparo is 58 years old and lives in a neighborhood called Anexo Villa Venezuela. She has four children, all of whom are grown and who help support their mother, as she is a widow. Amparo has been a seamstress for 15 years, a business that she started with her own funds, and which has struggled over the years to prosper. Amparo now wishes to invest in making children’s outfits, and the loan that she is requesting would be put towards purchasing fabric to make into those outfits. Amparo wants to expand her business, hiring more people to construct more items of clothing.
