“A few months ago I bought a piece of land to build a house on for my family. Right now we live with a relative and construction has already begun on the land, but I need money to put up the walls, put in windows and the door so we will be able to move into our house as soon as possible. I am requesting a loan of $1,200 to finish construction on my house.”
