Graca's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy construction materials.

Graca's story

Mrs. Graca, a 45-year-old, is married and lives in her own house. She is the mother of 2 kids (ages 13 and 7 years old) who attend 8th and 3rd grades. She plays no prominent role in her community.

With the loan, she intends to purchase construction materials, such as cement, blocks, and sand. The loan will also cover additional labor to continue work on her residence.

This is her second loan; the first one was invested in the same project. Her biggest dream is to complete the construction of her home and furnish it.
