A loan of $525 helped to buy cement, stone, sand, and sheet metal to build an extra room to rent out.


Raulina's story

Raulina, a farmer, is 58 years old and married. She has five children, four of whom are adults and one of whom is still in school. She also supports three grandchildren, who live with her. Her husband will pay off the loan with his work for the national ministry of defense. Raulina will use this loan to buy cement, stone, sand, and sheet metal to start building an extra room to rent and supplement the family's income. She plans to do this in stages. Raulina says that she will pay off the loan on time so that she can apply for additional loans to carry out her plan and prove her reliability to the foundation.
