A loan helped to buy a household appliance.

Cristina's story

Mrs. Cristina is 42 years old, single. She is an agricultural worker, mother of 4 children, one of whom works and the other ones attend school.

This is the second loan which will be used to buy a freezer for home use. The previous loan has been used to buy and sell products of basic need.

Her biggest dream is to have a proper house and to offer comfort to her family.
