A loan of $1,200 helped purchase ceramic tile, cement, sand to make home improvements.

Dalila De Jesus's story

Mrs. Dalila is 53 years old. She has been a professor for the past fifteen years and her husband also. She has two children who are 20 and 24 years old. One works and the other is a student. She began teaching as soon as she finished her studies. The problem that she has now is that they have decreased the number of class hours she gives so she makes less. She and her husband together built the entire cement house but they still need to stucco the walls, paint and put in ceramic tiles. This is why she opted for financing, in order to advance more quickly because she had been improving her home little by little. Her plans are to be able to retire and start an Avon cosmetics business with display cases. She is happy because this will make the improvement possible in a short time.
