A loan of $350 helped to buy building supplies and to pay labor costs.


Maria Candida Virginia's story

María’s a responsible, very hardworking person living in her own house with her life companion and their two children who are attending school at present. She’s sold used clothes, perfume, cream, deodorant, etc. for several years earning income to cover some of her household expenses.

Now, she’d like to do some home improvements but what she earns from her sales isn’t enough to do so which is why she’s asking for a loan to buy building supplies like metal sheeting, nails, lumber and to pay labor costs to build a metal shed to install her business in so she and her family can live more comfortably and more safely.
