A loan of $350 helped to purchase traditional skirts.


Rita's story

Rita teaches children in a center that shelters orphaned children. She has three children, only one of whom goes to school. The other two children are already adults. She's 42 years old and a widow.
With the amount of the loan she'll purchase traditional skirts. She'll re-sell them to her co-workers by order and they'll pay at the end of the month.
In the future she plans to build a surrounding wall around her house and enlarge her house. She states that she likes the services provided and that she'll repay the loan in a timely fashion.
In the future she'll request more loans so she can achieve her plans.
