A loan of $400 helped to purchase cement, bricks, sand, gravel and iron for building a room onto her home.

Delmy Lorena's story

Delmy is 29 years old and is a single mother to three children, ages 11, 10 and 7. Delmy's top priority in life is her children, and she works extremely hard to provide all she can for them. Eight years ago, Delmy started a business selling vegetables to support her children, and this business is still her primary source of income.

With the support from this loan, Delmy plans to purchase building materials such as cement, bricks, sand, gravel, iron and other materials to aid in the construction of a room for her family's home. The small house Delmy and her children are living in is not big enough to fit them all comfortably, so Delmy hopes that this investment will improve her family's living conditions.
