A loan of $1,000 helped to pay rent on "anti-credito" which will allow her to avoid monthly rent payments and be able to save.

Cristina's story

Cristina lives in a rented home in a zone of Miraflores with her minor son. She is separated from her husband of 15 years. She has worked as a secretary in the Legislative Palace for 5 years.

The loan she is requesting is to invest in the system of "anti-credito" [a system by which the tenant pays a fixed sum considered a loan to the property owner which they receive back in full when the rental period is over] because she is almost at the point where she will be evicted.

Cristina's dream is to buy her own home with the savings she can build due to this "anti-credito" so that she can give her children stability.
