Claudia Patricia's story

Claudia Patricia is married and has two young children. She works as a teacher at the school in the community where she lives. Claudia has been employed as this school for more than 15 years. She has aspirations, dreams, and goals that include finishing the construction and making improvements to her house. Claudia would not be able to do this without financing.


The loan she is requesting will be used to buy materials for the work such as blocks, whitewash, sand, cement, paint, iron, zinc, and other items.
