A loan of $300 helped to buy cement, concrete blocks, iron, and to pay for labor.


Maria Auxiliadora's story

María now has only two children under her care. Thanks to her efforts, her other children are independent. She has the support of her husband, who helps with her business activity. She continues with her business of selling vegetables, fruit, and firewood. She has been doing this for many years to support the family.

With this new loan she wishes to make improvements to the inside of her house. She wants to do things like reinforce the side walls with concrete. They are now made of used zinc sheeting and plywood. With time they continue to deteriorate. Therefore, it is urgent to make this investment. She will use the loan to buy cement, concrete blocks, iron, and to pay for labor. This will give her house a better look.
