A loan of $525 helped to buy plaster and paint.

Victoria's story

Victoria is 51 years old, she is married and she lives in a house she and her husband have succeeded in buying thanks to their efforts, little by little also making repairs. She is a very resourceful person who doesn’t like depending on her husband as she thinks that if both of them have a job instead of only one of them, they will be able to enjoy a better standard of living. Her husband works in maquiladora (foreign-owned assembly plants) of their community, while she sells cakes, hamburgers, fried cheese, tacos and soft drinks. She earns a living this way, thus contributing in paying for the household expenses. Her house needs to be repaired and she is requesting a loan to buy plaster and paint. She is grateful for the support she will receive to complete her project.
