A loan of $775 helped to purchase construction supplies (cement, rods, sand) in order to continue building her house.

Paulina's story

Paulina is married and has a daughter who's still in preschool. She's 34 years old, and she's a teacher and a college student. The house where she lives is still under construction. With the money from this loan she'll purchase cement, rods and sand so that she can build another bedroom and a kitchen, since the house only has one bedroom and a living room. In the future she intends to build a little private school. Finishing college is her biggest challenge. That way she'll upgrade her career status and get a fairly decent salary so she can achieve her plans.
