A loan of $500 helped to buy materials to build proper walls and a roof.

Catalina's story

Catalina lives with her husband Francisco in Totolapan, Morelos. They have lived in this house for over 43 years. At the beginning, the couple focused on making sure they gave everything they could to their kids to ensure they had a good life and a good education. The house grew to their needs but without many luxuries. Now that all the kids have left and that Catalina and Francisco are getting older, they want to make life a little more comfortable. They work around the clock managing their own water purification business, which gives them roughly $500 USD a month.

Since they are both self-employed and have few things of their own, according to other institutions they do not qualify for credit. Catalina has been saving for the last couple of months to build a proper wall and roof for a particular room of her house. She says she doesn't need much, but winter is coming and as they get older, cold weather is harder to endure year after year. Catalina is asking for a credit to finish paying for the construction materials she needs. Catalina and Francisco will receive supervision visits from certified technicians to monitor the quality and progress of the construction. They are both looking forward to having a concrete wall and roof.
