A loan of $575 helped to finish constructing a new kitchen in her home.


Juanita's story

Sra. Juanita is 50 years old and married to Sr. Juan. They live alone in their house since their children are all grown up and married. Her husband receives a pension every month that covers household expenses. Juanita is a housewife and also sells beauty products from catalogs in order to help her husband. In this way the two are able to support themselves.

They have currently been working on their house and making repairs to improve it. That is the reason Juanita has requested a loan in order to finish construction on the kitchen, so they can expand the space and make their home more comfortable.
