A loan of $425 helped to finish the exterior of her house.


Sofía's story

Sofía's house needs the finishing touches on the exterior, which are painting and repairing the outside walls. She's requesting the loan to buy the material because her husband is going to do the improvements.

Sofía works in a factory in the area of production and her husband works in construction as a bricklayer. This is the income she has to give the best to her son, who is in secondary school.

She'll use her salary to pay back the loan and her husband's income for the family and school expenses.

They want to improve their quality of life and their son's inheritance.
