A loan of $400 helped complete improvements to her home.


Jesus Erminda's story

Jesus is 61 years old and has worked as a tailor making all kinds of clothing since she was 13 years old. She lives together with her husband in their own home. She has a loyal clientele because she does good work and tailors clothing to the requested measurements. With the tailoring she has done she has been able to cover some household expenses, but she needs to complete some improvements to the home. The photo shows part of the house where she would like to build. As what she earns is not enough to pay for construction outright, she is requesting this loan in order to complete the improvements. This way she and her husband will be able to live more securely and have the home they have always wanted but have not had the financial stability to afford.
