Dominga's story

Dominga is the mother of 2 children, ages 8 and 17. Her husband is obliged to travel outside the country in search of employment due to the difficult situation in his country. Dominga continues to sell cosmetics from catalogs, which enables her to continue investing in her house, little by little.

On this occasion, she wishes to construct a porch, which the house still lacks, so that her children can play in an ample space within their own home. To do that, she needs to purchase cement, sand, concrete blocks, iron rods, roof supports, and zinc sheets, and to pay the construction workers.

The improvement is possible thanks to this financial help at low interest.
