A loan of $1,000 helped to buy cement and stone blocks.

María Verónica's story

María, aged 37, offers her services as a housekeeper. She lives in Primavera de Duran, a peri-urban marginalized area of Guayaquil with ecology on the brink of collapsing.

To help her husband with household expenses (they have two daughters), she began to work as a housekeeper in several households. She still has some time left over after her housekeeping assignments, which is why she decided to buy some perfume and clothes with a little capital, enabling a better life to her daughters who study at the public school. María wants to use her loan to buy cement, stone blocks and filling to improve her home.

In the future she wants to finish building her house and that her daughters complete their studies successfully.
