A loan of $500 helped purchase materials to install a ceramic tile floor.


Teresa De Los Angeles's story

Doña Teresa T. is a woman who puts much effort into everything she does. When she was younger, she had to work in order to help her parents. Now she does the same in order to support her own family. She has four children (ages 23, 17, 15, and 14), of which only one is a student. Her ex-husband is a mechanic and helps with the food bill even though they are no longer together. She currently works as a housemaid, but she doesn’t see any future in that job. When she has enough money saved, she wants to start a cosmetics business from home so that she can be in control and earn a better income.


Doña Teresa is requesting her fourth loan from AFODENIC. She will purchase sand, cement, and other building materials needed to install a ceramic tile floor. This will improve the condition of her home and make it more presentable. She thanks the Institution for providing these benefits so that she can make improvements that are suited for her family.
