A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a house.


Maria Guadalupe's story

Sra. Maria Guadalupe is applying for a loan to pay the difference [between the cost of a house she is buying and the amount of a loan] from Infonavit (a government credit program). She is renting a place now, but her rent is increasing and she's finding it difficult to keep up. Consequently, she's decided that it would be better to own her own house, a place for her daughter and grandchildren one day. Dona Maria Guadalupe works as an assistant for a medical practice. She has worked there for 5 years and her income from the job has allowed her to support herself and to send her now-divorced daughter to school. She wants to use this loan to buy the house and she's counting on your support.
