A loan of $450 helped to continue the construction of a room..


Maria Nela's story

Doña María Nela has always had a small business, a grocery store, and the moral and financial support of her companion. They have two small children who are studying.

Today she is pleased because her project of building a room continues to move forward. With her previous loan, María Nela was able to complete half of the concrete work and pay for part of the materials. However, she was not able to acquire additional cement.

This new loan will be used to continue building the walls and the ceiling. She and her husband will continue to work together until the room is finished. When the time comes, they will have a proper roof that will provide greater comfort and privacy for their family. They currently live with her mother-in-law, so she wants to move in quickly so that they will have a better future.
