She works daily in the school, and she has requested a loan to improve it. Her husband is a professor, and he has been a teacher for 20 years already. The loan she has requested will be used to buy cement (that will cost $250), blocks (that will cost $300) and paint (that will cost $450). She wishes to finish improving and enlarging her school.
