Karla Patricia's story

Karla, who is 40 years old, has always worked as a primary school teacher, just as her husband has made a living in sales. Her two children still go to school, which is why they both work hard to support them in advancing their studies.

Her main dream and difficulty is to finish building her house. This time, the seventh loan requested is to build the kitchen, namely to buy more construction materials such as sand, cement, blocks, iron, purlins, zinc wire, and nails as well as to pay for labour. This will allow the completion of the construction of her home and will provide her family with more comfort.
