Lourdes Magdalena's story

Lourdes, 20, works as an employee at two jobs. Starting at 5am she works as a sales assistant selling breakfasts; she finishes this job before noon. She also sells cosmetics to improve her income and at 2pm she starts to sell Broaster-style chicken. She currently has a dependent that is under the age of one and she wants to get ahead. She studied secondary school but because of lack of economic resources had to stop attending school to go to work and help support her family.

The loan she’s requesting is to add a room to the house. She wants to continue forward, to be more independent from her family and to be able to continue studying and to study a technical career to give her son a better future despite not having any support from her son’s father.
