A loan of $1,500 helped to expand her house.

Julia's story

Julia is 36, and lives on the north side of Cochabamba. She is married to Zenón and they have three school-age children. She works half-days as a cleaner in an apartment building in the city of Cochabamba. Her husband works as a taxi driver in the northern area of the same city. They are hard-working.

They have a small piece of land at her parents' place, and live there in two rooms. They want to expand their small house, which consists of two rooms and a bathroom, and which is now very small for their family of five people.

So they are building two rooms for their children, and need funds for the floors, roof and plastering. In this way they will partially improve their living conditions.
