Brenda Lucia's story

Young Brenda is single and doesn't have children. She has been working as a middle school teacher for the past ten years. She's a woman who loves teaching and sharing the gift of knowledge with local peasant children. She's someone who has struggled towards a better future. She requests her fifth loan in order to invest in the purchase of construction supplies so that she can build an addition to her house. Her biggest dream in life is improving her living conditions; having work stability in order to keep on making progress; being able to repay the loan; and seeing her family enjoy good health. With the loan she'll purchase cement, bricks, sand, iron and wire, and she'll pay for labor.
