A loan of $575 helped continue constructing a wall at the back of her lot, for a safer future.

Mayra Ivette's story

Mayra continues working as a teacher for the common well-being of her family. With that objective, she has been improving her little house. Her husband still works in design. For him also the improvements are for the welfare of the family, which now includes a son, born just months ago.

With this new loan, Mayra will continue enclosing their land. The front part already has a wall and now, they want to continue the wall in back. The lot is large and they have to enclose it little by little, since they lack the necessary capital. In addition, she has to cover the basic food basket, and the cost of water, light, and health, among other expenses. Mayra is happy about these improvements which, thanks to these loans, are becoming possible in the short term.
