Maria Jose's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase boards, nails, tie wire, rebar, cement, brick for floors and walls, sand, and to pay labor costs.
Maria Jose's story
Maria has worked arduously as a grade school teacher in a small, local high school in Larreynaga. She has worked as a teacher for 27 years, she is single and has one son who she is supporting through university studies. One of the needs that Maria faces is improving the condition of her home as it is currently in poor shape. For this reason she made the decision to turn to CEPRODEL to request a loan for purchasing building materials such as boards, nails, tie wire, rebar, cement, floor and wall bricks, sand, and to pay for labor in order to construct a wall, a floor in one room, and a walkway. This will increase the security of her home and thereby bring much improved living conditions for her son. It's important to underline this last point, and Maria is grateful to CEPRODEL for the financial assistance provided in resolving this issue.
