A loan of $800 helped home renovations: improve the foundation and replace worn tiles.

Nancy's story

Nancy is a member of the community bank "Patron San Sebastian", located in the Huanchac district in the province of Cusco. She is 46 years old, married, has four children, and works as a teacher. She works in the town of Ocongate, about three and a half hours from the city of Cusco. She travels to Ocongate on Sunday nights and returns on Friday afternoons. She teaches primary school and is also in charge of the whole primary school in a public school in the town.

She is asking for this loan to renovate her home. In the last few months, the rain has soaked the foundation and the tiles have worn down. It is now school vacation time, so Nancy would like to remodel her home before she returns to work and no longer has time. She would like to leave her home nice so that her children who are in high school and college won't be affected badly by it. Nancy is asking for this loan to invest in the renovation of her home.

She is happy with the loan given and she promises to make all of her payments on time.
