A loan of $850 helped to build a room.


María Luisa's story

Srta. María Luisa is single and lives with her mother and her two siblings who are in high school. She is requesting a loan so that she can begin construction of a room since the four members of this family currently share one bedroom. María Luisa wants to build this room for her siblings since they are getting older and need their own space and privacy in the house.


Srta. María Luisa is employed as a receptionist at a transportation company. Her salary will be used to repay the loan while her mother is able to cover the family expenses and the schooling of her siblings by preparing and selling tamales.


María Luisa wants her siblings and her mother to have a better quality of life, so she hopes to provide them a secure home with better conditions.
