A loan of $525 helped to purchase construction supplies (doors, windows, metal sheets, beams and cement) and to pay for labor and for transportation of the supplies, so she can continue building her house.


Teresa's story

Teresa is 55 years old and a widow. She lives in a house that she owns and has five children. Three of her children are adults and the other one attends high school. She's a packer for a banana company.
The current loan will be used to continue building her house, more specifically to purchase construction supplies (doors, windows, metal sheets, beams and cement) and to pay for transportation of the supplies and for labor.
Teresa's hope is to improve her living conditions.
