A loan helped to buy cemento, stucco, floor tiles, and pay for manual labor to improve a store and a property.


Arelis's story

Arelis, at 45 years old, is an entrepreneurial and hardworking person from the town of Turbo. She has worked for 10 years renting property, a business which she started out of economic necessity. Currently she is widowed and has 2 children.

Arelis has not stopped for a moment in her search for a better future for her family, and even more so during this COVID-19 pandemic, in which she has had to go through circumstances that weren't so good. She requested a loan from Interactuar to buy cemento, stucco, floor tiles, and pay for manual labor to improve a store and a property. This will enable her increase the income from rental of both.

Arelis hopes to receive your unconditional support.
