A loan of $650 helped to change the roof and plaster the walls of her house.

Sandra Vanesa's story

Sandra is an enterprising merchant. She is married, and her husband is a bricklayer. Her business is selling cosmetics, perfumes, and others by catalog.

Her projects are to improve the infrastructure of her house, to generate more profits, to change her standard of living, and to offer her son a better future.

She has had her business for some time. She started it to get another income to better cover the household expenses. She started it with her own funds. At the present time she invests everything she sells, her profits, in the business again.

She needs the loan to buy construction materials like zinc sheeting, purlines, screws, solder, cement, sand, gravel, a saw blade, and thinner, among others in order to plaster the walls and change the roof.

With this investment her family will be safe and comfortable. She is grateful for the opportunity to get a loan in order to improve her the conditions of the infrastructure of her house.
