A loan of $1,450 helped to have construction work done on her home.

Lourdes's story

Lourdes, who is 42, lives with her husband and their 4 dependent children. Two of the children are studying at university, a third is at high school and the youngest is still a baby. Lourdes buys and sells groceries in a small shop and her husband works at a pig farm where he is in charge of farrowing. Lourdes' daily life is very demanding because she also has to look after her children and do the housework. The couple's income is only enough to cover their subsistence and so they do not have adequate housing, which would improve the lives of all the members of the family. She needs the loan to pay for construction work which will enable her to improve her family's home.
