A loan of $1,000 helped to fit out two rooms in her home.

Ubalda Andrea's story

Ubalda is a 24-year-old young lady who has professional training in accounting, is married, and who has many goals for the future. She tells us that her age hasn't been an obstacle to allowing her to set goals for herself and become independent, rather she has taken advantage of her youth to have a bright future. She currently works as a receptionist in one of her country's state businesses, but her salary is not sufficient to cover her expenses as everything has gone up. That is why she currently has a business in her own home in the form of renting out two rooms. This business has generated extra income for her in addition to her salary and the support she receives from her husband. As this is her first loan cycle, she explains that her reason for taking out this loan is to fit out the rooms she rents with the goal of having them be her main source of income. Also, by offering her tenants better conditions, she will be able to increase rent. Her plan for the future is to finish her studies and become a certified accountant in order to seek out better employment opportunities.
