Maritza's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to install a sewage system.
Maritza is a merchant, she has received a middle technical education and lives in her own 3-bedroom house with a good finishing. She works eight hours a day to cover the costs of food, electricity, water, her children's education and other costs. Unfortunately, Maritza lives in unsanitary conditions due to the deterioration and the poor sewage system in her home, which causes diseases and toxic gases. She is requesting this loan to be able to install an adequate sewage system, so it doesn't pose a health risk and it prevents leak, allowing her to save water and not cause environmental damage. Maritza's dream is that her children finish their college education.
