A loan of $475 helped to build a wall around her house.


Irma Amada's story

Irma is asking for a loan from us because her house needs a solid wall, as they currently have a wooden fence. As such, she is asking for this loan to buy materials. Irma works in a mall and her husband is security guard. They have three children for whom they work hard at their jobs to be able to give them the best they can. She is asking for this loan to build a wall for security reasons since she doesn't feel comfortable leaving her small children home alone when she goes to work.
