A loan of $775 helped to buy materials and pay for labor in order to build a porch for her home.


Dora Maria's story

Dora is a 52-year-old woman and the mother of a son who brings in financial support. She sells various products such as bath scrubbers, towels, bags, and other items as a street vendor. This is how she earns her living as a single woman.

Dora is requesting her first loan so that she can build a porch for her modest home. This project is very important because it will give her more living space that she can enjoy. It would also give her the opportunity to set up her business at home so that she wouldn’t have to travel through the streets. The only way for her to accomplish this goal is with the support of financing.
