Santa wishes to have a family soon and believes this is the perfect place for them to live. Although Santa's house has enough space, she is still missing proper windows and doors for her house. She has been saving and can cover almost all the cost, and is asking for a loan to complete the payment for the materials she need to finish and install the windows and doors. Santa makes around $550 USD per month through a job that gives her no proof or regular income so no traditional institution will giver her credit. With this loan, Santa will receive technical assistance and supervision from certified technicians to make sure that the work she does complies with all standards of quality and safety.
Santa wishes to see her house finished and feel proud of what she has been able to build with a lot of work and effort.
