A loan of $1,000 helped to build a room.


Segundina's story

Segundina, 39, is a single mother with two children, ages 10, 14, and 17. She works selling clothing in one of the markets in the town of Sacaba. This loan is her second sequence with the institution.

Segundina will use this loan to build a bathroom for her home. Her reason for requesting this loan is that she does not have enough income to build rooms in her house.

Segundina faces challenges in her business such as not having a fixed stand. She is going to use the profits to buy construction material to continue improving her home. Now she is happy and grateful to the institution because she will have another room to give her children greater comfort.

Her goal is to have her own stand and stability in her business.
