Dalila Coronaro Romero – Cisco

Dalila is a 46-year-old single mother who lives with her 16-year-old daughter Gracieli in Guastatoya, El Progreso. For years, Dalila had sought support from financial institutions to obtain a mortgage loan, but she was always denied.

Some time ago, Dalila inherited a piece of land from her father, which Dalila used to approach Habitat for Humanity Guatemala and seek support so she could fulfill her dream of having a new home.

“The Habitat staff here in Guastatoya was very helpful. Over the past 25 years, I have moved many times. I was really looking forward to finally having my own home where we can live with dignity” – Dalila.

Dalila and her daughter now have a safe place to call home and also plan to improve the terrace of their house in the future. Dalila wanted to thank the volunteers for their support in building their new home: “It has been a pleasure working with the volunteers. I invite them to come and visit me soon. I bless each and every one of you. Thank you.
