A loan of $675 helped to place windows and doors and install electricity.


Yolanda Elizabeth's story

Yolanda and her husband have just acquired their home using a government loan. They are requesting the loan because the house is lacking doors, windows and electric light. At this time, they do not have the money necessary to carry out the improvements and be able to live in their house.

Yolanda works at a Mexican taco stand as a cook and her husband drives a truck for factory personnel. With her income, Yolanda will pay off the loan, and her husband's salary will be spent on household expenses and school expenses for her children.

She wants to improve their assets and have a safe place for her family to live.
