A loan of $375 helped buy construction materials to plaster walls and finish a room in her house.


Angela Del Socorro's story

Angela, very much a worker in a tough job, has been helping her family for 11 years. She washes and irons clothes afternoons until 4:00 when she finishes, plus weekends. What she achieves is to provide improvements in food for her family. She can count on help from her husband, who works in security services. Angela's objective is to improve her house, which they have been repairing, thanks to financing from Afodenic during 4 loan cycles. Now, this new loan will be used to plaster walls and finish closing the room they began with the last loan and failed to finish due to lack of construction materials. Angela will buy materials such as cement blocks, sand, cement, and sponges, and then start the construction. She is content because each day, her house is in better condition.
