Laurinda's story

48-year-old Laurinda is a farm worker and works from 6:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. She has been married for 32 years and has four children. Only one of her children is in school; the others are already adults. She also supports one grandson who lives with her.
With the loan she wishes to purchase cement, doors and windows in order to continue building her house.
Her future projects are to finish building her house and to buy furniture.
She states that she'll apply for more loans so that she can achieve the plans she has made, and for that reason she pledges to comply with the repayment schedule.
