A loan of $1,675 helped to install a home water purification and drainage system.

María's story

María wants to install a water purification and drainage system at home because it’s essential to have this service for better hygiene and to improve her property but she does not have the necessary capital for this improvement. She’s asking for a loan to buy the supplies needed and to pay the person who will do the work.

María has been employed as a cook at a taco stand for more than 10 years now and will use this income to repay the loan because she gets economic support from her children who are already married and have families of their own.

She wants to have more hygiene at home to avoid illnesses because her grandchildren and great-grandchildren visit her often and she does not want them to get sick for lack of a proper plumbing system.
