A loan of $500 helped to buy materials to build a bedroom and bathroom for her two children.

Regina's story

Regina,26, is a young mother of three that lives with her family in Totolapan, Morelos. Regina works selling the crops of her neighbor and roughly makes around one dollar per day. Her working hours are long and has to manage to cook and do other chores. Regina lives in a one bedroom house where she sleeps with her husband Eri, a local driver, and their two children Margarita and Santiago. Each time they have to use the restroom they have to walk a couple blocks to the community facility. To avoid this when showering, they simply use a bucket and do it by cupfuls. Regina and Eri have been living here for the last 10 years, working hard to save and continuously improve their house.

Since Regina and Eri do not have formal jobs and their income is low and variable, neither of them have access to credit from banks or other organizations. Regina has been saving for the last three months to build a new bedroom for her kids and a bathroom for the family. She is now asking for a loan to complete the payment of materials needed. The family will receive supervision visits from certified technicians to monitor the quality and progress of the construction. The new room will give the kids their own space to play, sleep and study and the bathroom will give a healthier life and privacy to the family.

Regina and Eri did not have the chance to finish their education and were forced to drop out after elementary. They want to make sure they take the right steps to give better opportunities to their children, and support them as they work their way through school.
