A loan of $350 helped to buy zinc roofing, steel channel u-bars, cement blocks, sand, cement, and rebar.


Maria's story

María is 56 years old. Her youngest son, 14 years old, lives with her and she is providing for his schooling. She works as a domestic worker and gives the best she is able to her other children, who are of legal age. Through her hard work, and as a single mother, she helped them to become independent people who support her unconditionally. Through her loans, she has been improving her house, with the goal of achieving improved security and comfort. This time she would like to build an annex to her room, buying zinc roofing, steel channel u-bars, cement blocks, sand, cement, and rebar to start the work.
