A loan of $800 helped to buy structural tubing, zinc sheets and anti-corrosive paint.


Maria De Lourdes's story

Maria de Lourdes has had several loan cycles in AFODENIC.

She is again seeking refinancing to continue the project which began some time ago: to put a roof on her house. This time, she will roof the porch, as the zinc is currently deteriorated.

She works in a cafe together with her sister. Her husband has a taxi, and in this way both of them help their family get ahead. She hopes in the future to be able to live in a house completely equipped for her family's needs.

With the loan, she will buy structural tubing, zinc sheets and anti-corrosive paint.
