A loan of $575 helped to purchase blocks, sand, cement, wood to raise the walls for the roof (which is currently too low and generates heat).

Rafaela Isabel's story

Rafaela is 52 years old. Her business is a small store where she sells a variety of products, which she started several years ago with money from her job as a cook. She had invested in cosmetics and clothing, but later decided to create her store for which she has been investing in stock with the funding provided by the institution.

To improve her store, her house is made of concrete although it still lacks a ground floor. However, what she wants is to do is raise the roof a little more, since it is rather low and generates a lot of heat. For this reason, there is the need to put up walls in better condition. For this, she will purchase blocks, cement, iron, wood, nails, and will began to do the work. She is pleased that through these loans she is obtaining a better roof.
