A loan of $275 helped to paint the exterior of her home.

Elvira Genoveva's story

Señora Elvira is a primary school teacher who has been retired for 11 years. She lives with her mom who is sick and under her care. In the mornings, she provides help to her young neighbors who are struggling with their studies, which she does with love so that they will be able to excel with their skills. She sell products from a catalog (cosmetics), so that she can provide her mom with a better quality of life, and be able to pay for her mom's medicines as she is a disabled woman of advanced age.

She is going to paint the exterior of her house as it has greatly deteriorated over time. She is very happy to have found us, and so to be able to carry out her project. In future she will be able to lay floor tiles inside her home, as currently she has a concrete floor.
