A loan of $500 helped to buy galvanized sheets, bricks, sand and cement to repair her kitchen as soon as possible.


Maria Francisca's story

Maria is 37 years old and lives in her own home in humble and simple conditions. She lives with her husband and six children (ages 18, 17, 15, 5, 3 and 1). Maria works very hard along with her husband to provide for their children. For eight years she has worked selling fruits and vegetables in her local market. This business has allowed her to support her family and help with expenses.

Maria would like to improve her open-air kitchen, the roof of which is in bad condition. She is requesting this loan from the field partner to buy galvanized sheets, bricks, sand and cement to repair her kitchen as soon as possible.
