A loan of $525 helped to purchase zinc sheeting, beams, and pay for labor.


Giovanny Lizbeth's story

Giovanny is 40 years old and lives in a marginal neighborhood called Laureles Norte. She is the single mother of five children, one of whom is one month old, and the rest are in school. In order to support her children, she works as a domestic employee, which is very difficult because her income is very small for her large family.

She is requesting this loan to change the roof on a part of the living room of her house. This improvement will guarantee the health and hygiene of her family since this sheeting is currently in bad condition and when it rains, water comes in.
