A loan of $475 helped to buy windows and an iron gate.


Maria Azucena's story

Maria Azucena C. O. is forty-four and married. Her husband works as a courier to support the family. They live in the Laureles Norte neighborhood and have three children. The eldest, who is thirty, is on her own, but the other two little ones are still dependent.

Maria's priorities include renovating their home. She is seeking a loan so she can buy windows and an iron gate to reinforce the house's security. Their neighborhood is in the capital, which has a higher crime rate that threatens their well-being. That's why she wants to make the expenditures, to invest in the protection of her little ones.
