Lourdes Del Socorro's story

Mrs. Lourdes is 42 years old and lives in the fantasma neighborhood in the capital. She is married and her husband is a merchant. She has three precious children, ages 10, 21, and 23. Her hope is to improve her family's quality of life and offer them new opportunities. Doña Lourdes has owned a small grocery store for the past 12 years, which she started with money she earned at her previous job. The plan for her business is to increase the volume of sales by bringing in new products. Thanks to the loans from Afodenic, she will be able to buy larger quantities of existing and new products to increase earnings, and also increase the variety of products she is able to offer her customers.
