Famille Zawadi Group's story

Edith is a mother of a family, and she does not have much to support her children except for a small business selling cassava flour. Her husband is a farmer.

However, as a way to improve her family's living conditions, her brothers convinced her to take out a loan with PAIDEK to build a house, while they would cover the payments.

Edith is pictured in the photo with her husband.
