A loan of $1,200 helped to build a wall.

Ruth Belina's story

Mrs Ruth Belina is 47 years old and lives in the Laureles Norte neighborhood. She is married and her husband works as a haulage contractor. They have 7 children. 5 are grown up and work and the others are financially dependent on their parents. Mrs L. has a small eatery where she sells traditional food and rents a room. She used to sell clothes but she realized that food made better profits. Her family lives in a humble dwelling and, with the increasing demand from her customers, she would like to make an investment which will enable her to construct a perimeter wall that will make her family safer, improve her service to her customers and in the future obtain the necessary financial resources to start new markets or sources of income which would guarantee better living conditions. This is not the first loan that she has had with Afodenic. With the support which they have given her, with she has slowly shown better working capital which allows her to invest even more in her business.
