A loan of $1,050 helped purchase paint, cement, sand and other materials.


Eva Julia's story

Eva is 67 years old, a widow, and lives with her daughter and grandchildren. Her primary source of income is from the renting rooms. She has spent 10 years renting rooms to others and she has a good clientele. Her prices are low and she creates a good environment to live in. Her business generates enough money to take care of household expenses, education, and caring for her grandchildren. Eva is an enterprising person and despite her age, continues working because she wants to give an inheritance to her children. With the help of the loan she will improve the rooms she rents and purchase paint, cement, sand and other materials so as to give a better service to her renters, which will in turn increase her earnings. One of Eva's dreams is to improve her family's quality of life and with the financial support of this loan she will be able to take one step forward in achieving this dream.
