A loan of $600 helped to buy a door and window, as well as iron and welding materials so that she can close off her house.

Karen Maritza's story

Karen is a sales consultant by profession. She has been working for six years to support her family. Her goal has been to improve her home and she has managed this with the support of her husband and Afodenic. For four loan cycles, she has bought construction supplies and managed to build the front walls of her house.

Karen is happy to have made this improvement and will use her new loan to buy a window and door, as well as iron and welding materials, so that she can have some grilles made which will make her house safer for her young children.

Karen's future plans are to continue building her walls from concrete until the house is finished and she hopes to achieve this with loans.
