A loan of $625 helped to buy blocks, cement, iron, sand and gravel.

Santos Rosa's story

57-year-old Santos is a single mother with seven children who are all married and help her with expenses. In the past, Santos made tortillas for a living but it was very tiring and her sales were not profitable. For this reason, she chose to work as a domestic employee in a private home instead. She now feels happier in her work.

This is the first loan that Santos has requested to carry out building work. She will buy blocks, cement, iron, sand and gravel in order to build rooms. Thanks to the support of this loan, she will be able to start making improvements to her home and this fills her with excitement.
