A loan of $400 helped to buy materials: zinc sheets, wood, and iron beams.

Esperanza's story

Esperanza spends the time between getting up early in the morning and going to bed late at night filling sewing orders from her clients. This has been her profession for years. Her husband works for himself as a carpenter. Esperanza took out a prior loan to build a porch and improve a room she was renting, but she wasn't able to complete the job due to increased cost of supplies. She managed only to buy a toilet and put down a floor in the room. With the new loan she's seeking she'll be able to finish the job she so longs to do to provide comfort in her home. She'll use the loan to buy materials including zinc sheets, wood, and iron beams.
