Jeerling Raquel's story

This lady, Jeerling, lives in the municipality of Ticuantepe with her family. Her husband is self-employed and works to contribute to the household expenses, as they have a ten year old son who is studying at primary school. Jeerling has been working for a private company for many years, and her plan for her family is to improve their living conditions.

Jeerling requires this loan because she wants to change the roof of their house, as it has deteriorated a lot and in wet weather it acts like a strainer which damages the few electrical appliances that she painstakingly managed to buy. This loan will be invested in the purchase of zinc, beams and cement, among other items.
