A loan of $750 helped to buy corrugated metal roofing, purlins, bolts, cement and sand for a room’s roof to improve living conditions.

Marcia Del Carmen's story

Marcia is a hard working woman. She has been sewing for several years and has also had a school bus route for students as a part time job.This provides additional income for the household along with her husband’s support who is also a driver.

Home improvements have been her goal which she has been doing utilizing the profits from her sewing and the sales of used clothing sent by her sister in law from overseas. These have been great help to her.

She is requesting a new loan to continue the improvements in her home since it was not possible to finish them with the previous loan. Walls and the roof are still needed, so the loan will be used to buy purlins, corrugated metal roofing, bolts, sand, cement and iron to start the work.
