Mexico
Nuevo Laredo, Mexico / Personal Housing Expenses

A loan of $400 helped replace the wiring for the lights & repair the doors of the house.


Herlinda's story

At the home of Sra. Herlinda Gómez, the wiring for her lights needs to be changed and all of the doors are in need of repair. However, she does not have the money needed to make these improvements immediately.

Doña Herlinda sells purses, perfumes, sunglasses, and beauty products. This is how she earns income for her family, which consists of herself and her daughter. She is requesting a loan to purchase materials and pay someone to make the repairs. She is concerned because she has young grandchildren and fears that something might happen to them.
