A loan of $1,000 helped to reinforce the roof and walls of her house and add another room to have more space.

Daysi Marlene's story

Daysi is 38 years old and works as a domestic cleaner to support her two children who depend entirely on her hard work. She is a single mother and does not get any other financial support to bring up her children. Daysi is very responsible, and that is why she has been working in the same house for several years as her boss trusts her a lot.

She is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL to be able to improve the condition of her home and to be able to build another room so that they can have more space and feel more confortable and safer as a family. Since her house is a basic structure, it is very fragile and not very resistant to changes in weather. With the loan, she will also be able to reinforce the roof and walls of her house.
