A loan of $650 helped to buy sheets and poles to repair the roof of her home.


Dolores Isabel's story

Dolores is 36 years old and lives in her own house with her husband and her daughter, who is 14 years old, and her son, who is 3 years old. Dolores has provided domestic services for a long time. She is a very hard-working woman who, with her husband, brings money to the household and gives her family better conditions. Dolores requests this loan to invest in the purchase of sheets and poles to repair the roof of her home, given that it has deteriorated and that she wants to improve conditions for her family.
