A loan of $525 helped to complete the construction of a room.

Miriam Del Socorro's story

Miriam is 50 years old and makes a living as a seamstress. She has provided this service to her customers for over 14 years; thanks to the experience and support of her husband, who is a tailor, together they have been able to build a strong customer base.

She will use this new loan to invest in the infrastructure of a new roof and floor for a bedroom. They will need to buy the following construction materials: sheet metal, gravel, cement, metal beams, cinder blocks, glue, welding supplies, screws, sand and bricks, amongst other things. As a result of this investment, water will not be able to come in their room, which is important because it is just beginning to be rainy season in the country.

She expressed that she is thankful to kiva and the micro-financiers for the support to the development of their business that has been provided in previous loans, and in this case the improvement of the infrastructure of her home.
