A loan of $525 helped to buy a toilet, PVC pipes, cement, sand, blocks, iron and pay for labor..


María Elena's story

Maria is 36 years old, married, and has four children under the age of 17 who go to school. One of them was born with a disability and she provides him special care. She gets support from her husband, who works as a security officer. She works in her mini-market and also supports herself by making tortillas.

She needs the loan in order to invest in infrastructure, which is her primary goal. On this occasion she will have sewage pipes and bathroom plumbing installed. She is now able to make this investment given that a main sewage pipe was recently installed for everyone in her neighborhood. They did not enjoy this privilege before, and with it they will have better sanitation and a more comfortable home.

She will purchase a toilet, PVC pipes, cement, sand, blocks, iron, and pay for the labor.

All of this is thanks to Afodonic, with funds from KIVA, which she is very happy and thankful for.
