A loan of $500 helped to buy tin sheeting, cement and sand to repair her home.

María Luz's story

Maria, 54, is a single mother of a 16 year old girl and a 17 year old boy who are both in school. She works very hard as a farmer, and also sells beauty products from a catalog, so that she can get ahead and give her kids what they need. Due to the fact that she is the only one caring for and sustaining her children, Maria prioritizes food, clothing and her children's education, which has meant that her house has been deteriorating little by little. She wants to repair one of the rooms in her house where her kids sleep, which is why she has asked for a loan to buy tin sheeting, cement, wood pallets, sand, and other construction materials to make the necessary repairs. This will be a great help to her, since thanks to this loan she will be able to give her children a safe and comfortable home.
