A loan of $675 helped to buy building supplies so that she can start building concrete walls at the front of her home.


Martha Eugenia's story

Martha continues working as a cashier and making income from a room which she rents out. This helps her to cover her expenses. Over the years, her goal has been to improve her house and she has been managing this through loans. Martha would currently like to build higher walls in her home as the council repaired the roads and raised the ground at the same time which meant that the streets became higher and her home was left lower than the level of the road. She would like to make this improvement before the winter comes and she gets flooded. She would like her front walls to be level with the street. In order to achieve this, she will buy building supplies ( stone, sand, cement and iron) and start the work. This will provide her family with security.
