Irma Ofelia's story
Irma Ofelia is a 55 year old woman who lives with her husband. She has a 28 year old daughter who works and helps her parents. This beautiful family lives in the community of Suchitepéquez. In order to obtain her own income and help her husband with the household expenses, Irma Ofelia works as a domestic employee in a private home. She has been doing this work for 25 years and thanks to it she has been able to support her family. Irma Ofelia is a mother who worries about the needs of her beautiful family and now she has realized that one of the most necessary things is the construction of a corridor for the side of her house. She has suffered lately because the sun hits the side of the house very strongly and now that the rainy season is coming, she is worried about not having a side corridor to avoid the rain coming in. One of the difficulties she has is that she doesn't have enough money to build with and that is why she is asking for a loan to buy cement, lime, sand and iron. Irma Ofelia's big dream is to have this loan and improve her family's quality of life and some day be able to open a store to buy and sell groceries.
