Nerida Geovana's story

Ms. Nerida Geovana F. R., 39 years old, is a single mother. She lives in her mother's house with her children, one of whom is independent. She has been employed for 8 years as a factory worker for IQF [a business focusing on activities such as freezing and preserving food for export].

She is requesting this loan to finish construction of her house now that her mother has provided a piece of land to build on. She is a very hard working and responsible person who, through much effort, has provided a good education to her children and hopes to have a better quality of life. Her dream is to be able to complete the construction of the house. Ms. Nerida Geovana F. R. is grateful for the assistance that we have been able to provide her through this financing.
