A loan of $400 helped to buy corn, peanuts, wood, raspberries and plastic bags.


Lissette Del Socorro's story

Lissette del Socorro has had a business selling corn products (Chicha) in one of the markets in the city of León for fifteen years. She does this to support her family as she is a single mother with two young children.
She leaves her home at 5.30am to begin working at 6am and finished work at 12pm.
She started this business with her savings.

Lissette is asking CEPRODEL for a loan to buy corn, peanuts, wood, raspberries and plastic bags in bulk. This will allow her to offer her customers more affordable prices to meet demand, and so obtaining more income which will improve the quality of life for her and her family.
