Maria De Los Ángeles


A loan of $550 helped to replace the electrical wiring in her home.


Maria De Los Ángeles's story

Maria De Los Ángeles has lived in the city of Coahuila, where she has been living for over 15 years. Her husband died six years ago, leaving Maria alone to care for her son, who is now studying in high school. Maria has been working as a security guard for a health center for a year now.

She is requesting this loan in order to replace the electrical wiring in her home because they are in very bad condition and she wants to replace them before an accident occurs. With the income she receives from her security guard job, she will repay the loan. She also receives a pension after the death of her husband to help pay for the household and education expenses for her son. Maria hopes to improve the quality of life of her son.
