Gisela Veronica's story

Gisela is 29 years old and lives in Chinameca, in the department of San Miguel. She lives with her mother and her siblings. She has an 8-year-old son who is economically dependent on her.

She has been an employee of the Municipality of Chinameca for 2 years, working from Monday to Friday in the position of assistant in the civil registry. At present, she would like to improve the current condition of the roof of her home, and she is requesting a loan to buy all of the necessary materials, such as shingles, nails, wood, and paint. With these materials, she will be able to renovate the roof.

With this investment, she will help her family, because they will be in a more secure home and will enjoy a better quality of life. Gisela's aspirations are to keep her job and do her work better every day, since her son depends on her support, and she wants to provide him with everything he needs. She would also like to finish her university studies in Business Administration.
