A loan of $1,075 helped to build the front part of her house.


Aracely Del Carmen's story

Señora Aracely is 35 years old. She is a businesswoman who began to work a number of years ago to support her family. She continues with her convenience store, which has already been her principal support for approximately eleven years. Her husband, who sells construction materials in a truck, supports her. Together they have succeeded in constructing their concrete house. She is turning to financing in order to complete improvements in their house. Now with this new loan, she will continue the infrastructure of the front part of her house, that is, the porch of her house, because she will need to buy the following construction materials: zinc sheets, rafters, an iron gate, and iron railings, among other items. Thus she will begin construction and achieve better security for her house and her family.
