Rita's story

Rita is 43 years old and married. She has three children, two of whom attend elementary school and one hasn't reached school age yet. She's a farm worker for a banana company. The current loan will be mainly used to purchase construction supplies (bricks, cement and windows) and to pay for labor so she can continue building her house. Also, a small part of it will be used to purchase goods (a TV set and a 6-seater table) for her house.
