A loan of $850 helped to purchase zinc, purlings and other construction materials to finish the roof.


Gloria Maria's story

Gloria is a hard-working woman. She has her own business, a cafeteria that she has run for many years, in a hospital. She began with the desire to help her husband with the bills. In the early hours, she arrives at the cafeteria to prepare breakfasts and sell more. With the increase she has had with the investment of loans, she has been able to maintain the success of her business. In this way, she has been able to make improvements in her home to the roof and walls, but still needs to paint and finish the roof to complete the work for which she still lacks funds.


With this loan, she will be able to finish the work, purchasing construction materials such as zinc, purlings and other materials to begin the work, and she will be able to relax.
