A loan of $500 helped to remodel the rooms that she rents out.


Erling's story

Señora Erling C. was born in San Carlos in 1956. She currently lives in the Laureles Norte neighborhood. She has 3 children, who are all adults. She has a business renting rooms. She lives with her companion, who does work in houses like electrical work so he can support the home economically. She would like a loan so she can remodel the rooms since they are currently built with plywood. She would like to build them with bricks to offer better security to her tenants. They will also be more durable and of better quality so she can charge a higher price for them. This will let her make more money and help her improve her quality of life and that of her family and to generate the necessary capital for future projects.
