A loan helped to pay tuition.


Isabel's story

Isabel is 44 years old. She is divorced and lives in her own home with two grown children and a sister. She has no other dependents, and she does not occupy an official role in her community.

She is a worker and a student. She will make her loan payments from her salary, having been left by her husband. With this loan she intends to pay the university tuition, which is overdue, in order to be able to take her final exams.

This is her second loan with the institution. With the first one she bought building materials to improve the condition of her home.

Once she has finished paying off this loan the borrower intends to request more loans to continue with the construction of her home.

Her biggest dream is to get a master's degree.
