Blanca Ninoska
View original language description ↓
Blanca is seeking a loan to invest into home improvements, specifically for the construction of a bedroom. She works as a primary school teacher at the Salomón Ibarra Mayorga School. She has a 5-year old child, who is in pre-school. Despite that she is single and can’t count on assistance from her child’s father, she is a very responsible mother. She also has assumed the responsibility of caring for her grandmother. It’s important to explain that she has improved her house little by little with previous loans. She is a hardworking woman who gets up at 4 a.m. each morning to make breakfast for her child and grandmother, given that by 6 a.m. she has to travel to the town of Los Angeles to teach the rural children of that area.
