A loan of $450 helped to buy materials to build a drain.


Alda Lucia's story

Alda is a single mother whose children are in elementary school. She is a hard-working woman whose children's well-being is her topmost priority. Alda is carrying out a project to make some improvements to her home. She is a seamstress by profession and, for a long time, this has been the way in which she has managed to get her family ahead in life financially. She started her business with her own funds and learned to sew from her mom. Her short term plans are to increase her sales. Alda will use her loan to buy construction supplies such as cement, sand, quarry stone and gravel to build a drain which she needs to prevent illnesses. She is grateful to the financial institution for improving her living conditions.
