A loan of $500 helped to buy cement, sand, rebar and cinder blocks to build a front wall.


Ericka Rosa's story

Erika is a hardworking woman and a single mother of four children, one of them being 17 years old with special needs and therefore looked after in a special school, so sometimes it is difficult to keep up with all the main household expenses by herself. Her income is from the sale of used clothing and also working as a housekeeper in order to manage to balance the expenses. She intends to use this second loan to raise a wall in the front part of her house since she runs the risk of being robbed of the few products that she has for sale on her porch, because the area where she lives is dangerous.
