A loan of $1,300 helped to begin construction of a room on the upper floor.


Bertha Alicia's story

Bertha Alicia wants to have more room in her house and to add on to it little by little. She got the house by means of a government credit. It only has two bedrooms and needs another, since her children are growing and need their own space in the house. She is requesting the loan in order to purchase materials such as cement, rods, sand, and blocks, and to pay the person in charge of building the room, which will be for her daughter. Bertha Alicia works in an accounting office and her husband works as a supervisor for quality control at a factory. Between the two they know that by working they can increase their wealth and improve their children's quality of life.
