A loan of $1,300 helped to repair her house.

Heliodora's story

Heliodora is 60 years old. She has been married to Pedro for a long time and they have one son, who is grown up. They live in their own house in the city of Encarnacion.
Heliodora has been a shop keeper for a number of years. She has a well-stocked mini supermarket in her house. She has many customers in the area, as they sell all kinds of basic food products, drinks, household goods, clothes and other things. Her shop has expanded gradually. They started with a small stock of food, and added to it more and more. Her husband and son help her to look after the business. Apart from this, they have rooms to let in their house, which is a great help. Thanks to these activities they have been able to survive, maintain their home and meet any unforeseen expenses.
Heliodora has applied for this loan in order to make some improvements to her house, as some of the rooms that they rent out are in need of repair, and in this way, to continue to offer good service to their customers.
