A loan of $600 helped to build a wall for her house.

Ana De Jesus's story

42-year-old Ana lives with her two sons aged 20 and 18 years who are labourers (they work in agriculture). She is a domestic worker in a house. The three of them work near their home.

With their pay they have been able to move forward and cover the costs they face, but Ana is applying for a loan to be able to build a wall for her house. This is because there is a steep slope behind their house, which is what you can see in the photograph, and she does not feel safe in her home. She is applying for this loan to give her children more safety as what they earn doesn't cover the cost of building their house.
