A loan of $450 helped cement blocks, purlins (c-beams), sand, cement, and also to pay for labor.


Maria Neris's story

María has worked for 28 years giving classes to children. She is in a stable relationship. She is a primary school teacher and she works as a school counselor in the school in the area where she lives.

She currently needs to build a bedroom onto her house, so she visited the office of Ceprodel to request a loan that she will use to buy construction materials such as: cement blocks, purlins (c-beams), sand, cement, and also to pay for the labor of the people who will do the work. This will give her a better quality of life.
