María Bertha's story

40 year old Bertha studied until 6th grade. She is a single mother of 4 children, 2 of whom work and help her with the household expenses. She does domestic work one block from her home, and she has been working in this house for 6 years. She starts at 7:00am and leaves at 3:00pm. She needs the loan to build a room as she still lives with her parents and she wants to have a space for just her and her kids. Bertha's dream is to have her own house some day and to be able to furnish it and to likewise enjoy it with her kids and not depend on her parents.
