A loan of $1,450 helped to buy brick, cement and sand for repairing her home.

Salmi's story

Salmi is 45 years old and has been buying and selling vegetables at wholesale for more than 10 years. Her husband Silvio has been a builder for more than 20 years. She took out the loan in order to repair the rear part of her home, because she wants to continue improving it little by little. When it rains, a lot of water gets in, and she wants to buy bricks, cement and sand so that by means of their work, her husband can gradually improve the house.

She is thankful for this new opportunity she is receiving, which will allow her to have a decent home.
