Petrona Del Socorro's story

Petrona, 52. is single and the mother of two sons, one who is 17 years old and the other is older and independent. Petrona makes her living creating shirts and sleeves in her house. She has eight paid workers and she requests the loan in order to buy cloth, thread, satin, elastics, trimmings, etc. With the previous loans, the partner was able to construct part of her house and acquire an industrial machine to increase the business. This has motivated her to continue borrowing from the institution.
