A loan of $450 helped to purchase construction materials to repair the roof of her home and tile her kitchen.


Maria Elena's story

María still runs her own clothing sales business, and, during her years of work, she has grown her customer base. Her hard work has paid off and has allowed her, over time, to make small repairs and improvements to her small house. Presently, she wants to repair part of her roof and instill tile in her kitchen. With the support from this loan, she plans to purchase zinc and sand laminates as well as cement for starting the construction. She is very excited to be able to provide a better roof over her family's heads.
