A loan of $350 helped to build a stonger foundation for her house.

Maria Candelaria's story

María Candelaria is a single mother and works in a local pharmacy as a sales clerk. She has a second income as a domestic worker. She has lived in a government-subsidized house for 12 years. With the passage of time, her house has been deteriorating. The walls are cracked and when it rains the dampness gets in the house, which is causing damage to her furniture. Candelaria is requesting support to build stronger foundations for her house so that she can prevent damage to her property and also provide her children with a safe home.
