A loan of $775 helped to buy construction materials to begin making the walls of her house concrete.

Karen Carolina's story

Karen is a young woman of 23 years old, single, who lives with her parents in very simple conditions. She has put a lot of effort into finishing her studies during the past year, and she received her degree in accounting which helps her in her job as a bank teller. She paid for her degree with loans, and is very satisfied to have concluded this part of her studies for the moment, as she would like to continue studying in the future.

As she has paid back these previous loans, she would now like to improve her house as it is very unsafe and made of old zinc, so she wishes to improve the infrastructure and will start with constructing concrete walls little by little as the construction costs are very high.

She will buy stone, blocks, sand, cement, iron, and tables to begin the work.
