A loan of $500 helped to buy bricks, steel, sand, and cement to build a wall.

Mercedes's story

Mercedes is a hardworking woman, very dedicated to her home. She works selling yucca and plantain tostadas, as well as horchata (a refreshing drink). Mercedes is a single woman, and doesn't have children. She is asking for a loan to be able to buy bricks, steel, sand, and cement. This is to be able to build a wall around her property, due to the fact that currently she doesn’t have one, and there is only wire between her house and those to the side. With this loan, she will be able to have a house that is more sheltered from the surroundings where she can enjoy more privacy at home.
