A loan of $550 helped to buy materials to build her home.


Vilma Esperanza's story

Vilma is 37 years old and has worked as in farming for 5 years. Her main crops are corn and beans. She lives with her husband and two children in her own home. She uses the profits from the sale of her crops to pay some of the household expenses. Vilma needs to build a home on the plot shown in the photograph, but she doesn't earn enough to finance this. This is why she is requesting a loan to buy materials such as cement, bricks, iron and sand, to build a house that she has wanted for a long time but which her economic circumstances have not allowed. Then, they will have a better house in which to live together as a family.
