A loan helped to purchase construction materials such as sand and cement, ceramic flooring, and a toilet with a sink.


Sofía Del Carmen's story

Sofía is a woman who has struggled in life to get her family ahead. She is 54 years old, married, and has two adult and independent children. She has decided to establish her own business to depend on herself and has needed to make improvements to her bathroom, so she came to MiCrédito to ask for a Kiva loan to purchase construction materials such as sand and cement to re-plaster the walls, to purchase ceramic flooring, and to purchase a new toilet with a sink, among other repairs. This will improve the hygienic and sanitary conditions for the well-being of the users.
