A loan of $625 helped to buy cement, sand, blocks, paving stone, and iron.


Reina Teresa's story

The young Reina is 35 years old. Her life companion works as a bus assistant. She continues with her work as a machine operator in a free zone. Her three children under the age of 14 continue to go to school, and she hopes that all of them can complete studying for a career. This sixth loan that she has applied for is to buy construction materials such as cement, sand, blocks, paving stone, and iron to continue improving her house, which now still has a great part covered with used sheets of zinc and wood that is quite deteriorated with holes. With this investment she hopes to have better conditions in her house to offer better security to her children.
