A loan of $850 helped to buy cement, sand, blocks, iron, zinc, and stones.

Fátima Del Socorro's story

Fátima is 32 years old and her partner works as a machine operator in order to cover the family's expenses. They have two children under the age of 9, and with a lot of hard work and effort have been able to maintain the costs of their home and of their children's studies. Fátima used to work in a factory but when her youngest son became sick she had to quit, and she now works as a domestic helper in a large home. She has used previous loans to improve her home, and this loan will also be used to add some rooms to the home. She needs to buy cement, sand, blocks, iron, zinc, and stones in order to do so. She would like to start the work as soon as possible, in order to put in a concrete wall, as one of the walls at the moment is just a sheet of metal and sometimes it gets very hot.
