A loan of $375 helped remodeling her home.


Ramona Del Carmen's story

Ramona del Carmen L. H., age 54, lives in the Benjamín Zeledón neighborhood. She is married, and her husband works as a bricklayer. They have two grown children who live independently. However, the children help their parents financially. She has worked as a janitor for over 12 years. They are a very humble family, and they live in a humble home. The walls and the roof are in precarious conditions. This poses a health and a security threat to the people who live there. That is why she is requesting a loan to buy building materials. These materials will allow her to finish remodeling in order to improve the living conditions for herself and for her husband.
