A loan of $1,000 helped to improve her brother's home.


Vicenta's story

Vicenta is 56 years old, studied until third grade, is not married, and only has 2 children.

She does not have a business in El Salvador, but she is a citizen of the United States. When she is in the US, she is dedicated to domestic activities like cleaning houses.

She needs this loan to improve the home of her brother, who suffers from mental illnesses and is becoming disorderly. It is for this reason that she desires to help him clean up his house and avoid problems of violence that her brother sometimes can cause others.

Her dream is to return from the United States when she is pensioned and continue her life in El Salvador to be united with her family.
