A loan of $1,200 helped to add a room and enlarge the house.

Maribell's story

Maribel is a teacher by profession; she continues teaching classes day to day and her children are still going to school. At present, she has remarried and her new husband is a driver. She feels supported both emotionally and economically.

Through these loans she has better housing conditions and is able to balance her expenses and have a good repayment behavior and continue with her home improvement projects.

She used her previous loan to add a room because her house was very small and she’s been adding to it in order to have more room and conditions for her children. Two of them are working and she gets help from them to continue with her projects. She will use this new loan to extend the living room into the adjacent lateral empty parcel.
