Esperanza Internacional runs a program for their good clients who are reliable in paying back their loans, who have fulfilled their commitment to grow their business, and who have shown fidelity in their groups. This allows them to take out a loan to improve the structure of their house at the same time as running their businesses and attending their group meetings.
Maria wants to continue building her house, and with this loan she will change some deteriorated wood walls and the zinc roof with new concrete block walls, and she will also make a roof with new zinc. Before she started but she knew she didn't have enough capital to finish. She is requesting this loan to buy cement, concrete blocks, zinc, and other building materials. She thanks God, Esperanza Internacional and all of you for this opportunity. In her name and that of her family, thanks to all of you for your support!
