A loan of $1,275 helped to purchase a washing machine.


Maria's story

Señora Maria is from the city of Concepcion. She lives with her husband Don Evelio and four of their children, as one of her daughters is working abroad.

Maria has a business doing events and a small store. Both she and her daughter Dimia help out with all kinds of events, parties and decorations. Dimia is in charge of the decorations, and Maria's husband, Don Evelio, is in charge of transportation with his vehicle as he has a carpentry workshop and spends a lot of time there doing his work.

This family is very hard-working and self-sacrificing. They all help each other, and thank the Fundacion for giving them the opportunity by providing them with a loan, as with this loan they plan to purchase a washing machine. With this they will be able to better wash the tablecloths, as this is very hard work.
