A loan helped to buy construction materials.


Amelia's story

Amelia is a 60-year-old widow who is retired and the mother of six children who are independent adults. But she is responsible for three grandchildren.

This is her first loan and it will be used to buy construction materials such as zinc sheets, beams, paint and electrical material to improve the condition of her house.

Amelia's main dream is to build more rental units and a booth to increase the family income.
