Rosa Maria's story

Doña Rosa María is 36 years old. She is a single mother of two children. She has worked in a tax-free area and now has a small grocery run by her sister. Doña Rosa María herself works as a domestic employee in a private home. She also rents rooms in her home. This is the way she has devised to cover her basic household and personal expenses and to give herself and her family a balanced standard of living. In order to continue moving forward, Doña Rosa María is requesting a second loan. She needs to purchase cement, wire, sand, gravel and blocks to put up a wall in front of her house. With the purchase of those materials, she will be able to start construction. The wall will give more security and strength to her dwelling and to to her tenants as well.
