Sara Luisa is now requesting a loan to make improvements to her home. She wants to build a hut in the laundry area and a gutter in two of the rooms to prevent the rain from draining into the house.

Sara has worked with the Foundation before and has demonstrated her responsibility in paying back in time and under the agreed terms.

Her dream is to finish her house and to have a decent home for living. Thanks to the requested loan she will buy construction materials such as nails, zinc, metal sticks and others.
