Alejandra is a member of this community bank. She is most grateful for the incentive to save money, with which she plans to build her house. She currently lives in her sister's home. In the next few days Alejandra will buy land for her home. Alejandra is single and has 4 children, of whom only 1 is her responsibility. Alejandra has a store in her home where she sells general groceries: meat and vegetables. She started this business 6 months ago and it is going very well. Alejandra also sells food on Saturdays and Sundays. She is requesting a loan which will cover part of the payment for her land.
