Basilia's story

Basilia is 39 years old. She studied through primary school. Due to lack of resources, she was not able to continue studying.

At present she lives alone, because her partner and father of her 4 children abandoned her 5 years ago. Since then, Basilia is both father and mother for her children. She lives in the house that they constructed alongside her ex-partner. She has a business selling clothing at the local market. Every weekend she travels to the city in order to stock up on merchandise. This is why she is requesting a loan - to be able to increase her capital, to improve her quality of life and to be able to support her children.
