A loan of $1,000 helped cement, blocks, and sand.


Rita Maria's story

Rita is 43 years old. She is a hard-working woman that has fought to improve her family's life since she is not married.

Living on the edge of the city in a zone called "Perimetral", she has worked for five years as an informal salesperson of L'bel products (a cosmetics and personal use products company that helps hard-working women with catalog sales). She works from Monday to Friday selling personal use products, and on the weekends she sells fish in order to have another additional income.

She has many aspirations for her family; that is why she wants to continue working. One of her objectives that she wants now, is to better construct her house since the rainy season is coming. It is for this reason that she wants to buy cement, sand, and blocks with the loan. In the future, she wants to have another floor on her house to rent out, and in this way have more income.
