A loan of $1,125 helped to buy building materials and supplies to replace her entire roof.

Silvia Filomena's story

Silvia is a Stylist by profession; she has several years experience since she was able to open her own beauty salon where she provides services daily earning income to cover expenses and improve her home.

Thanks to Afodenic loans she’s been improving its infrastructure. Her previous loan was to be used to replace the roof but because her budget wasn’t enough she diverted the loan to tile the bathroom and buy a toilet. She will use this loan to repair the roof since she’s managed to save up part of the money and got some from her children because the roof is in such bad state that she wants to replace it entirely. She will buy zinc metal sheeting, purlines and screws to start the project.
