A loan of $525 helped to fix up her kitchen and patio.


Luisa Emilia's story

Luisa Emilia, 40, is from Chichigalpa. She is married and has two minor children who attend secondary school. She is an active state worker and also receives support from her husband who is a merchant. With much sacrifice and determination, Luisa Emilia has been able to provide for her family. She is requesting a loan to repair the tile in an area of the kitchen and also fix up the patio which is in disrepair. The materials she needs to buy are sand, gravel, cement and iron, and she also must hire workers.

She is grateful to lenders for the support they give people with low incomes so they can obtain a loan.
