A loan of $750 helped to buy materials for building a security wall around her home.


Maria Eugenia's story

Maria Eugenia is a humble and extremely hardworking woman who has limited financial resources. She is the mother of five beautiful children who make her feel proud. Her job is that of a street vendor who sells corn on the cob, corn tamales, "wirilas" (sweet tortillas stuffed with cheese), tamales, and stuffed tamales. Maria's business is the main source of income by which she is able to earn a daily living for her household. Like any mother, she wants to provide a better future for her children.


Her reason for requesting another micro-loan is to build a wall around her home in order to provide more security, better conditions, and a better standard of living. In order for the construction to occur, she needs to buy quarry stones, gravel, wire, supports, cement, blocks, rulers, nails, and other supplies. Starting the construction will be a reason for her, her husband, and her children to be happy.
