A loan of $1,300 helped to purchase materials for the construction of the internal walls in her home.

Isabel's story

50-year-old Isabel is a vendor of new clothing and she is very happy that she has her own stall located in one of the markets in the capital.

For Isabel, making improvements to her home has not been easy - she has had to make many sacrifices as the prices of building materials are constantly rising in her country.

Isabel expresses her appreciation of microfinance, as without this support she would not have been able to construct her house. She will invest this loan in building the inner walls of her home and will continue to improve the roof, which requires the following construction materials: Cement, blocks, iron, gravel, zinc sheets, bolts and beams, among others. The construction will allow her to build up her entire home in concrete and get rid of the cracks in the boards that have been deteriorating over time.
