A loan of $700 helped to repair a wall in her kitchen to give her children a safe home.


Patricia's story

Patricia lives with her children in the city of La Paz.

Patricia has a law degree. Patricia has a problem with a wall in her kitchen that is connected to the patio because the rain and humidity have caused it to crack and deteriorate. She wants this loan to be able to repair this wall, and in this way, give her children an inviting home.

Patricia's dream is to be able to gather enough money to rent her own law office and have better income to improve her family's quality of life.
