A loan of $1,000 helped to buy construction materials and pay workers.


Rosa Elba's story

Rosa is 33 years old and lives in her own home with her family. She has been making a living for four years selling sopa de mondongo (tripe soup); she manages to pay for some of the household expenses with the income she gets from sales.

Rosa wants to improve her house by cementing and plastering the walls but, as she doesn't have sufficient capital, she is requesting a loan to buy construction materials and pay workers, so that she and her family will have a respectable home.
