A loan of $825 helped to install new plumbing in her home.

Brenda's story

Sra. Brenda is 36 years old and originally from the state of Chihuahua. She moved to Nuevo Laredo more than 20 years ago. Brenda is married to Sr. Enrique and they have two children who are studying. The older child is in high school and the younger one is in elementary school. Sra. Brenda works as a day care provider and looks after four children in her home. Her husband works in the construction business as a bricklayer.

Brenda and her husband are requesting a loan in order to have plumbing installed since their current system has deteriorated over time and is in bad condition. Sr. Enrique will be responsible for installing the pipes, but they need to buy the necessary materials. The income that Sra. Brenda earns from taking care of children will be used to repay the loan. Her husband’s income will be used for family and school expenses.

Brenda and her husband want to improve the quality of life for their family. They also want to provide their children a safe home and the necessities that are required to get ahead.
