A loan of $1,625 helped to purchase construction supplies to repair her home.


Lilliam's story

Lilliam is 65 years old and lives with her children in a community called Upala, which is in the province of Alajuela, Costa Rica. The area is known for its national parks, its extensive variety of flora and fauna, and for having a very warm climate good for growing certain fruits like mangoes and melons, among others. Lilliam has her own home, but it is in bad condition. She needs to repair the walls, floors and pavement, since it is the rainy season and the water seeps into her home. She is requesting the loan to purchase construction materials, like zinc, wood, cement and other items. She is a member of Empresa de Crédito Femenina Cantonal de Upala S.A community bank, and this will be her third loan cycle, which is why she is very grateful to have access to the credit you are providing so she can take on her life's projects.
