A loan of $375 helped to buy materials for making bricks..


Alicia's story

Alicia is a hardworking woman. She is 37 years old and has four children, two of whom are in high school while the other two are in elementary school. Alicia helps her husband with making bricks to sell. They also make cinder blocks. She has been in this business for five years and says that her husband learned from his father, who worked in this traD. for a long time.

Now she is requesting a loan to buy materials for making bricks such as gravel, cement, sand, and other items. She will buy these items from a store in her village that sells construction materials. Her dream in the future is to buy her own machine for making bricks because the one that they use belongs to her father-in-law. Alicia says that she is very pleased because this is the first time she has worked with a loan. She is also happy that the interest rates are low and that the payments are not a heavy burden.
