A loan of $1,025 helped to install a sewer connection and build a bathroom.

Maria Virginia's story

María is 47 years old, married, and has four children who are 7, 10, 22, and 25 years old. She works selling staple products at her neighborhood store, which is located in the area of Esmeralda.

This loan is her first with this institution. María will use this loan to install the sewer connection so that she can have a bathroom in her home, since this will allow her to have this basic service in her house and provide more comfort for her family. She is requesting this loan because she did not have sufficient funds to obtain the necessary items.

The challenge María faces in her business is competition, and she uses the benefits to reinvest and to construct a bathroom and shower. María is happy with the opportunity provided, since she is realizing her dream of having a finished bathroom.
