A loan of $650 helped to buy sheet metal, rebar, cement, and sand, and to pay for labor for her bathroom.

Iris Janeth's story

Iris, 27, lives with her companion, and her two children in the home she owns in the community of Caimito San Lorenzo, Valle, in the south of Honduras.

She has worked for two years selling used clothing. Her customers are her co-workers, because in addition to selling clothes, in her free time she works as a secretary in a salt factory.

With the support of the loan, Iris plans to invest in improving her house. She needs to put a roof on her bathrooms and a small kitchen where she prepares food. She needs to buy sheet metal, rebar, cement, and sand, and pay for labor.

Iris is a new client. Her dream is to keep on improving her house with the help of the loans.

San Lorenzo, Honduras, April 2014.
