Gioconda's story

Gioconda is 42 years old, single, and has a daughter in elementary school. She has worked for nine years for a state institution as an inspector. She is requesting her eighth loan to finish purchasing materials for the construction of her house. With the previous loan she was able to purchase part of the materials and raise four walls. She is still missing doors, zinc sheeting, and beams to put up the roof. She would also like to put a porch in the back part of the house so that her daughter can play there. She is a hardworking woman who has improved her daughter's life alone. Thanks to the loans she has received, she has been able to slowly accomplish her dream of having her own home with the necessary conditions.
