A loan of $1,325 helped with home construction.


Maria's story

Maria is 34 years old. She lives in the village of Cesarzama of the city of Cochabamba. She is single. Maria sells meals, specifically, kebabs, in the village of Cesarzama. She only sells on Saturdays and Sundays, and on the rest of the days she does work such as being a day laborer for farms. Maria lived in the department of Potosi about 10 years ago. She had to come to Cesarzama because she didn't have enough income to be able to support her family. The loan that Maria is requesting is for house construction. This way, she will be able to have a better quality of life and will be able to help her daughters finish their schooling. She dreams of a better future for her daughters because she was not able to finish school, but she wants her daughters to be able to have a career and help the people in the area.
