A loan of $1,000 helped roofing, paint and cement.

Gregoria Eugenia's story

Gregoria is 64 years old. She has worked as a domestic employee in a home for quite a while, in order to cover her expenses. She lives in an urban area where most of the inhabitants work as informal traders.

She works washing, cooking and ironing clothes in a house where she is a domestic employee. She works on most days during the week. Sometime in the future, she would like to have a business of her own so she can take more time off and be secure in her old age. With the loan, she would like to improve her house, because part of the roof is damaged and she is afraid that water will come in.

In the future, she would like to continue working and change her current lifestyle, so that her older years will be better.
