A loan of $500 helped to buy construction materials: blocks, cement, iron, and to hire workers.


Clara's story

She is 43, single and the mother of two children. The eldest is 26 and is in his first year of university and the youngest is 21 and a senior in high school. For 14 years she has lived in a stilt wooden home. In an effort to have a house with a cement and wood foundation, she is requesting a loan to buy building materials: blocks, cement, and iron, and to hire workers. Her dream is to give her family adequate living conditions and build a wall around the house for more safety and comfort for her children.
