A loan of $650 helped to buy PVC pipes, a toilet, sand, blocks and cement, and to pay for labor.


Gricelda De La Cruz's story

Griselda is 39 years old. Her husband works in a lathe workshop and helps with home expenses and their three children, the oldest of whom is 16. Her great wish is for them to prosper in life through their studies and be professionals. She works as a janitor in a poultry business. Her last loan was for building a front wall, but she was not able to build the wall since she built the entire living room of her house out of concrete. Now she will use this loan for sewage installation and the construction of a bathtub and toilet. She will buy PVC pipes, a toilet, sand, blocks and cement, and will also pay for labor, and this way she will continue making improvements to her home little by little.
