Consuelo's story

Consuelo is 41 years old. She is a single mother who lives in her own home with her four children. Consuelo has had a small store in her home for various years. With the earnings she obtains from the store she can pay for some of the expenses of her home. She wants to improve her home, but with what she is earning she can't accomplish this goal. This is the reason she is seeking a loan to purchase materials like cement, sand, bricks, iron and payment for manual labor to construct a wall next to her home and to install lights in the kitchen so that she and her children can live comfortably and securely.
