A loan of $1,175 helped to buy quarried stones, cement blocks, cement, zinc, and to pay for the labor.


Maria De La Cruz's story

Maria de la Cruz, age 59, lives in La Colonia Los Ángeles in Nueva Guinea, RAAS. She has been producing basic grains on her farm for many years. She does this with her children, who help her with the business operations.

Maria needs to make improvements to the condition of her house. It is in a bad state. She feels that it does not provide the necessary conditions to live in it safely during the wintertime. Maria is requesting the loan to buy quarried stones, cement blocks, cement, zinc, and to pay for the labor.
