Cochabamba, Bolivia / Personal Housing Expenses

A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase construction material.


Celina's story

Señora Celina is 34 years old, and is married to Señor Guillermo. They have three young children and a baby who is barely a few months old. They are a very united fmaily.

Señora Celina works providing cleaning services to different houses in a neighborhood with families with high levels of financial resources, and her husband works in the same way by doing swimming-pool maintenance for these same families. Until a short time ago, they have been living in a rented house where the rental price was very high, so they decided to build their own home on a plot of land which was inherited from Señora Celina's father. Bit by bit they are doing construction, as they have the main shell of the house and lack the money to purchase the materials for doing the detailed work. Thus this loan will be destined for the purchase of said materials; although the house wasn't completely finished, they already moved in.

Señora Celina's dreams and goals are to fully complete construction on her house, where her children will be able to live comfortably with each one having their own room.
