A loan of $425 helped to buy purlins and zinc sheets and pay a work crew to replace the roof of her house.

Sandra Elena's story

Doña Sandra Elena is 43 years old and has been working for a public school as a janitor. She, alone, has been paying off all of the loans obtained from Afodenic on her salary. She is a client who has chosen to take out her tenth loan in order to upgrade the infrastructure of her dwelling. At this time, she will replace the roof and beams of her house, which are very old and deteriorated. Thus she needs to purchase purlins, zinc sheets and pay a work crew.

She still has several other improvements to make on her house and will do them gradually thereby improving the living conditions of herself and her young children who continue with their studies. Her greatest desire is that they become professionals so they can fend for themselves.
