Alice's story

Mrs. Alice is a 63-year-old widow living in her own home. She is a mother of 5 independent and adult children; she lives only with her grandchildren.

With the financing, she intends to buy construction materials to continue the work projects. She will acquire: cement, irons and blocks.

This is the borrower's 5th loan; the previous one was applied for the same purpose.
