A loan helped to buy construction material such as sand and joists as well as labor costs for a construction worker to make improvements on her house.


Seril's story

Seril is 36 years old. She is single but has a four-year-old son named Miguel. Seril lives with her son and her mother; her father died a while ago.

She has worked as a saleswoman for a year. Her customers are private individuals.

Seril wants a loan to buy construction material such as sand and joists as well as to pay labor costs for a construction worker to make improvements on her home. In this way she and her family will have more amenities.

She dreams of having her own business selling cell phones in the not-so-distant future.

Seril is in this photo with her mother.
