A loan of $225 helped to buy cement, sand and labor to install a zinc roof.


Ruth Del Socorro's story

Doña Ruth still has a business selling gas cylinders, firewood and cooked beans, all of which are in great demand by her customers. She gets help from her husband, who works as a farmer and driver. Their married children have higher incomes. With this loan Ruth will continue construction on her home, putting up walls and a roof. She already has the zinc and beams for the roof but still needs cement and sand to finish the walls. Ruth has been able to do this more quickly thanks to the loan she has received from Afodenic.
