Rosalia Matilde's story

Sra. Rosalia, 43, is married and has one son. Her son is in high school and her husband operates an auto repair business from a workshop behind their house. Rosalia has worked as a technician for a private company for 24 years. She is applying for a loan, her fourth, that she will use to make improvements to her house. The investment will allow her to buy the building materials--roofing, perlines, cement, concrete blocks, sand, iron bar--she needs for the project. Rosalia is a responsible woman and she has made significant improvements to her house with past loans. Her goal is to improve the house, bit by bit, and make it a safer, more attractive place for her family to live.
