Eveling Del Socorro's story

Eveling del Carmen has worked for 12 years as an elementary schoolteacher for a public school in downtown La Paz. Throught her work she has gotten her family ahead. Her family is comprised of herself and a son; she's a single mother and provides him with education, food and other basic household necessities.
She currently requests her second loan for making improvements in her home, such as repairing the roof in the bedroom. She needs to buy construction supplies such as metal sheets, beams and nails, and to pay for labor. That way she can improve her son's living conditions.
In the photo, Eveling is with her class of students, who are children aged between 10 to 12.
