Maria Elena's story

María Elena can always count on her husband, who supports and agrees with her on everything. She has made a few changes in her house with Afodenic and Kiva’s help, and she is requesting a new loan to keep on making improvements to her house. She wants to build a room for her children’s comfort, and she will use the loan to buy cement, sand, blocks and iron and to pay for labor costs. She is a worker in a company and thanks to this job she will have no problems in repaying her dues. Through this mean she'll be able to fix up her house little by little since doing it all at once is very difficult because of the financial situation.
