A loan of $525 helped to build a concrete roof.

Bertha Patricia's story

Bertha has lived in this city for forty years. You could say she has lived here all her life, because that is really the case. She is very dedicated to her job - where she has been working for two years - and of course to her family. She has two children, and that is why she is asking for help through Kiva. She wants to finish building a room for her older son to use as a bedroom, so that each sibling can have their own space.

Bertha manages a very well-known retail store. She is planning to pay back this loan with the income she makes from this retail business, where one of her children also works. They are a great family, very hardworking and responsible, and they want to get ahead. Through much effort, Bertha and her husband have been able to build their house little by little.

This will be her second loan obtained through Kiva.
