A loan of $1,000 helped to invest in making home improvements.


Ana Yensi's story

Ana is 27 years old, and is very enterprising and responsible. She lives with her mother, who is 67 years old and works as a seamstress.

Ana makes a living serving customers at an agricultural service center selling medicine, animal feed, fertilizer, compost and seeds for planting among other products. In this way, Ana and her mother work hard to move forward and, between them, maintain their home.

Despite her huge efforts, Ana has not managed to meet the basic need of improving living conditions in their home, and this is why she is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL. With this loan, she can replace the damaged roof and floor of her house. In past winters, they have suffered many leaks and flooding, which make it uncomfortable for them to be in their own home. Ana wants a safe house for her and her mother, and to live in peace.
