Laura is 34 years old, married, and has 2 children aged 9 and 6 who study in a school in the community. Her husband is an industrial mechanic. They do not have their own house, so they live with her father and share the household expenses with him.

Laura has worked as a domestic since she was very young. She works all day from Monday through Saturday. At her house, she also raises guinea pigs, chickens and ducks that she sells in her community.

This is her second loan with her communal bank, and she will invest the proceeds in construction materials for her house, such as: cement, bricks, sand, gravel, steel, etc.

Her goal is to finish the construction of her house.
