A loan of $550 helped to build a new coal stove with a metal grill and improve the chimney.


Nohelia Del Socorro's story

Nohelia is 50 years old and makes a living making corn pancakes. She has been doing this for over 15 years and this has been the income source that has supported her four children. Given that she is a single mother, Nohelia must earn the necessary money to provide food, shelter and an education for her family. Nohelia is underemployed, though, so that she can look after her children.

Nohelia's biggest dream is to improve her quality of life at home, which is why she is applying for a loan that she will use to build a new coal stove with a metal grill and to improve the chimney. This will allow her to increase her production and her income.
