A loan of $400 helped to purchase construction materials for making improvements to her kitchen.


Aura Lila's story

Doña Aura is a seamstress by profession. She has been working for more than 30 years in order to provide for the common welfare of her family. Her living conditions are simple, but slowly she has been making improvements to her home.

Aura has the financial assistance of her children, which gives her great satisfaction. The loans from AFODENIC have been used for home improvements. With her previous loan, she was able to add a room at the back of her house by purchasing concrete and wood.

Today she will use her new loan to make improvements to her kitchen, which is in very bad shape. The floorboards are quite old and need to be pulled up in order to start from scratch. Aura will buy materials such as wooden planks, nails, lumber, and other supplies so that she can improve the condition of her home.
