A loan of $425 helped purchase purlins and zinc sheets to make a porch and live in better conditions.


Gloria Maria's story

Gloria is 48 years old, married and has a lovely family with three children. Gloria is a dressmaker by trade, a profession in which she has eight years of experience. She has had to work a lot to create her home. She has been improving it little by little with earnings from her previous work as a cleaning supervisor, and with the support of her husband who works as a driver.

She started her business for better income and to be able to take better care of her home, as well as her family. Now Gloria would like to build a porch. The one she has covers the front of the house but in the winter, water gets in since it's not fully closed. She wants to improve this situation by closing it completely.

This loan will be used to buy ten zinc sheets, ten purlins and cement to begin the work.
