Lucia's story

Lucia is a vendor. She's married and has five children, three of whom are already adults and the remaining two are in school. Aside from her children, she supports a grandson who lives with her in the house that she owns. With the amount of the loan she wishes to purchase metal sheets, cement, sand and rocks in order to enlarge her house. Her future plan is to finish enlarging her house and put up a wall around her yard. She states that she gets help from her husband who works in South Africa. She also states that she'll repay the loan in a timely fashion and request more loans so she can achieve her projects.
