Raquel De Los Angeles's story

Raquel is 32 years old. Her life partner supports her with her income from working in a free-trade zone. They have a 16-year-old son who attends secondary school who they would like to see reach college.

This young lady, aside from her wage from the free-trade zone, also earns a living selling cosmetics, music CDs and movies. She also does raffles. She stays very active working in order to be able to collect enough for the basic expenses that present themselves month-to-month and offer everything necessary to her only son.

Now she is requesting the opportunity to obtain her first loan to buy construction materials such as cement, sand, blocks, gravel, planks and nails so she can finish building the walls of her house, which will offer her and her family greater security.
