A loan of $1,450 helped to make improvements on her home.

Maria Deicy's story

María, 38, is single and has a son, 6, whom she supports on her own. She finished high school and wasn't able to continue her studies because she lacked the resources.

María's main income is raising and selling pigs to various restaurants in the area. She also has a second income from cleaning buildings in the city.

María's house is under construction so she's requesting a loan to make improvements. This way she'll be able to give her son better living conditions.
