A loan of $425 helped to buy aluminum frames, and frosted and flat glass.

Luisa's story

Doña Luisa, fifty-one, started working as a housekeeper when she was fifteen. Her children are now adults. Some of them are independent and the rest live with her. Her partner works on his own as a carpenter.

She has used the previous loans for improving her house. The latest improvements she made were building a wall in the back of her house and installing toilets and sinks inside the house. She wants to use this new loan to buy glass and aluminum frames for her windows, since she only has wrought-iron grilles. She will buy glass louvers, frosted glass and flat glass. She plans to finish building her house, step by step, for the family’s comfort and safety.
