A loan of $775 helped to buy construction materials to finish a room.


Maria De Lourdes's story

María is still working as a cook in her sister's snack bar; they support each other mutually. She has three married children and the moral and financial support of her husband. He owns a taxi, which gives a larger percentage of the earnings, although the cost of gasoline is high.

Her goal has been to remodel her house, which she has been doing in the short term with the loans from AFODENIC and with savings. She has begun to make a room. She still has to raise the walls, the roof, and the doors, which she'll do with this new loan to make progress and soon enjoy the improvement.

She needs to buy concrete blocks, sand, and metal rods, and continue with the construction.
