A loan of $650 helped to buy construction materials such as zinc, cement, wood, gravel, sand and iron bars and to pay for labor to build a kitchen in her home.


María Victoria's story

Maria is single and an elementary school teacher with three years of experience. She is requesting this loan from the field partner to build a kitchen in her home. She will use it to buy construction materials such as zinc, cement, wood, gravel, sand and iron bars and to pay for labor.

Maria is grateful to the field partner and the other lending institutions that have helped her very much to make improvements to her home. She says that this is her third loan, and that it is the only way she can continue making home improvements, because teachers’ salaries are very low.
