Delfina's story

Delfina is a clothes and cosmetics merchant. She's a widow and has a son but he does not live with her. Delfina started her business four years ago. She works every day from 7am until 3pm. Income earned from the business has provided her with the basics.

She's asking for a loan to buy building materials and supplies to repair her home like roofing tiles, cement and iron and to pay labor costs. With this she'll be able to repair her house's roof so that it will be more secure and she can live more care-free. Her goal is to improve the business and to stay busy with work in order to cover her needs and expenses.
