A loan of $450 helped to buy construction materials (sand, cement, stone, bricks, etc.).


Zelia's story

Zelia is married and is the mother of four children who are already adults. She lives in her own home with her family and also supports her mother-in-law and one grandson who live with her. She has her own business selling basic products. With her current loan, she will buy construction materials (sand, cement, stone, bricks, etc.) to continue work on her home.

In the future, she hopes to expand her stand to be more diversified and to sell more products. To do this, she promises to make her payments on time to be able to request more loans.

Her main challenge is investing even more into her business to increase her income.
