Yamileth De Los Angeles
Yamileth has been a dressmaker for many years. Her husband works as a mechanic. In this way, they support each other so they can provide their children with what they need for their education, clothing, and food. The greatest difficulty they face is that their income isn’t enough to build an annex onto their children’s bedroom. The children sleep on bunk beds and as continue to grow one can appreciate their discomfort because of the size of their room. For this reason she is requesting her first loan, so that they will be able to expand the room. She will need to buy cement, sand, cement blocks, rebar, and wire so that they can sleep more comfortably.
