A loan of $1,050 helped to buy cement, paint, chairs.


Maritza Isabel's story

Isabel, 40, has aspirations that in the next years she will take control of her work as a private teacher.

Her story began 13 years ago when she realized it was profitable to give private classes, with the added benefit of being able to stay home with her kids. She works from 2 to 6pm. Challenges she have faced included not having adequate infrastructure. She is separated and has 3 children.

Her biggest dream is to continue improving her house to provide a better quality of life for her kids and to have more children enroll in classes. For that reason she needs the loan to take control of her at-home business and improve the area where she gives classes by purchasing cement, paint and chairs.
