A loan of $1,500 helped complete repairs and construction on her house.


Maria Blanca's story

Sra. María Blanca is 33 years old and married with three children. She has primary level education. She has been a seamstress for nineteen years and uses her sewing machine to make all kinds of clothing.

María Blanca also sells bread every morning in the town centre. Her husband works in the maintenance department for a company. Both are very keen to make progress in life, and for this reason they want to do some work on their house which was damaged in the rains; it is also old. They currently have a room under construction which they could not complete because the señor had an accident in 2012. Now that he is stable again, María Blanca would like the repairs and construction finished. For this reason she is seeking a loan.
