Aida's story

Doña Aida is now retired from her work as a primary school teacher. Her greatest desire is to finish building her house in order to leave her children a good home and make her grandchildren feel proud of their grandmother. She receives economic support from one of her children. Her plan for the future is to set up a little sales establishment for cosmetics, so that she can live on this income and complement it with her pension, because at times the money does not go far enough to cover the various expenses for medicine, food, and basic needs. With this eighth loan she will put up a wall on the back part of her house. To do this she needs to buy blocks, iron, paving stone, cement, brackets, and gravel and pay for labor so that she can have better conditions in her home.
