A loan of $1,025 helped to improve her house.


Mariana's story

Mariana is 36 years old. She is married and lives with her children and her husband, who are her greatest priority. With her loan she intends to purchase wood, paint, and other materials that she needs and also pay for labor to repair her house, and in this way she will be sure of having the work done well. What she wants is to be able to buy the best materials and take advantage of the bargains that appear at this time and which are of good quality, so that her house will remain in good condition and thus [the loan] will improve their quality of life. With the improvements in her house, she hopes to have a more suitable place to live and an appropriate environment for the development of her children and to have more liquidity to be able to pay for their schooling, and thus they can have a better quality of life. This is her first loan from FUDECOSUR. She has not had other loans in the past from state banks, but FUDECOSUR has offered her the loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate.
