A loan of $825 helped to build a porch.

Ana Alicia's story

Ana Alicia, 41, is single and the mother of two children. Her eldest is 18 and is a second-year university student and the younger, a 17-year-old, is a special needs child because when he was a baby he got meningitis and this left him with developmental problems; in addition he is asthmatic. She has worked for the last 11 years as an adminstrator. She is requesting her 5th loan to build a porch onto her house, which was built through a project sponsored by CARITAS, because she is still renting because she needs to upgrade her house to accommodate her son's special needs so that he will be in a comfortable environment. She states that thanks to AFODENIC she has been able to buy home appliances and has been buying metal gates to secure her house. She is hoping now to be a beneficiary of a Kiva Fund grant to improve her house. She dreams with having a spacious house so her family can live in comfort and, God willing, be able to request another loan to help her reach this goal.
