A loan of $525 helped to install a concrete roof.


Maria Del Carmen's story

Mrs. María del Carmen is a very strong woman despite her age. She was widowed several years ago and had to fend for herself. She has not made any improvements to her home since her husband died, as he was the one who took care of these things. But now, she sees that it is necessary to install a concrete roof in her home because hers is deteriorating, and when it rains the water gets in through the current wood and laminate roof. In order to be able to install the roof, she needs to buy cement and sand, and pay for the labour.
