A loan of $450 helped to build a room at the bottom of her yard.


Xiomara Del Socorro's story

Xiomara continues working as a packer in order to provide for her family's well-being. She now has a partner who works as a builder and her goal is to improve her home so that she can provide her family with better living conditions.

What Xiomara would like is to build a room. She will use the existing wall she has as one of the walls for this room, which will save money and provide more space. She will buy stone, sand, cement and iron so that she can build walls and achieve better comfort for her family to live in. She is achieving this in the short term thanks to her loans.
