A loan of $850 helped to purchase cement, rods, beams, brackets and metal sheets.


Aida's story

Aida has been a teacher for six years and works from noon to 5:30 p.m. She's a widow and has four children who study. She's 42 years old.
With the amount of the loan she'll purchase cement, rods, beams, brackets and metal sheets so she can continue her construction work. She's enlarging her house with one more bedroom, a kitchen and an indoor bathroom.
Her plans are to go back to school, overlook her children's studies more closely and finish the construction work, a project that she started alongside her late husband.
She states that she'll repay the loan in a timely fashion and request more loans again so she can achieve her plans by making her house more comfortable.
