A loan of $425 helped to purchase cement and iron so she can start building her house.


Artimiza's story

Artimiza is 39 years old and single. She has five children who study.
She's a merchant. With the amount of the loan she'll purchase cement and iron so she can start building her house, because right now she lives in a house made of substandard materials.
She dreams of finishing the house, furnishing it and acquiring a vehicle for carrying her merchandise and for renting out.
She states that she'll repay the loan in a timely fashion so she can apply for other loans and therefore achieve her plans for the future.
