A loan helped to pay for school expenses.


Carla's story

Carla is 57 years old, and the retired, single mother of one adult daughter. She is responsible for her niece and does not play any particular role in the community where she lives. She lives in her own house.

She plans to use the loan to pay her daughter's school expenses and to repair her computer. Carla has taken out a number of loans, and she used the previous one to buy household appliances and to invest in her house. Her main dream is to see her daughter finish her education.
