Rosa Elizabeth's story

Doña Rosa is 54 years old. She sells clothing in her home and she also goes out to sell her products on the street. She has four children, all of whom are adults and have careers. The only difficulty that she has had was when her husband died, but thanks to the help of God, she managed to advance, along with her children, overcoming this great loss. Now it is in her plans to improve the condition of her house to have a worthy and better residence. For this she is applying for her first loan to make improvements in a room of her house. The materials that she needs to buy for this purpose are blocks, cement, sand, sheets of zinc, and plywood, and she needs to pay for labor. With this she will be able to do the work, thanks to the financing, since she is not able to cover this expense in a single payment.
