A loan helped to purchase construction materials for repairing a house.


Iris's story

Iris has a house, where she lives with a daughter and her grandchildren. Because of the normal climate patterns of the area and different factors, like Hurricane Lota, the walls and roof of Iris's home have deteriorated.

She is requesting a loan so she can purchase construction materials to repair her home and fix the leaks; the house floods when it rains. Iris's hope, through this project, is to provide herself and her family with greater security. Because of the large amount of rain that falls, her family's health is at risk along with their belongings, which can get wet and damaged.
