A loan of $1,075 helped buy sand and bags of cement.

Blanca's story

Blanca is 42 years old, and she is separated. She has one child, and they live together in her elderly mother’s house. She initially lived on the land in a meager way with a straw mat and without basic services. That is why she moved to her mother’s house. Now Blanca takes charge of her mother.

It is multifaceted. Part of her remuneration can be seen in this construction. A little while ago she raised the beams and the walls with her son’s moral support. During 15 years she has been arduously building towards the end. Blanca is happy with what she has achieved. She and her son will soon move to this house, and they will live decently.

For the moment her greatest desire is to install water, and then she will build the floor in this house.

This is her first loan with MFP. She knows that this loan will be very helpful in finishing the floor of her house. She pledges to make all of her payments on time. She will use the loan she is requesting to buy fine sand and bags of cement. She also wants to pay the labor expenses for a bricklayer.
