A loan of $375 helped hire a worker to fix her home.

Karen's story

Karen is 21 years old, married, and has one son who is 3 years old. She lives with them in a house made from adobe. Karen cares for and educates children under 4 years old. It is a job she considers to be very selfless because children that young require a lot of attention. Karen wants to improve her home that is made from adobe blocks, a home she was able to build on a plot of land her parents gave her when she got married. She has had the luck to be able to count on her husband's support. He works in agriculture. She wants to continue working and be able to earn more money in the future. This is the first loan she is asking for and she is thankful for the show of confidence they have given her since she is so young and is in a position where she depends on the help of others. She wants to use this opportunity to hire a worker to replace a wall of her home with new adobe block because they have begun to deteriorate due to the constant rain.
