Delia's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped buy building materials and pay a worker for house improvement.

Delia's story

Delia is 37 years old. She is married and has two sons, ages 12 and 6, and two daughters, ages 16 and 9.

She has been employed in a company for the last five years. She lives with her family in a small house and she is requesting a loan to buy building materials and to pay a worker for home improvement. She wants work to be finished as soon as possible because she wants her children to be more comfortable.

Delia and her family are healthy. Delia can be seen in the picture in front of the construction site. Behind her is the worker she hired to do the job.
