Amparo Justina's story

Amparo is a woman who has had eight children. Giving them food, an education, and a lots of other life essentials has not been easy at all. However, as a hard-worker, and with help from her husband, she has managed to get ahead. Now almost all of them are independent. Only two are still adolescents and under her care. Her way of earning a living continues to be a small grocery store.

She is looking for a way to improve her homes conditions. That is why she is requesting her fourth loan to repair the roof and continue building a room she has already started. With this loan she hopes to be able to advance as much as she can. The room needs walls and windows, among other things.
