A loan of $350 helped to purchase cement, rocks and sand.


Lina's story

Lina is a farm worker. She's 53 years old and a widow. She has six children, all of whom are adults. She lives in company housing and supports three grandchildren who live with her. With this amount she wishes to purchase cement, rocks and sand in order to continue building her two-bedroom house, which is currently in its early stages. Her plan for the future is to pay for her grandchildren's schooling, finish the construction work, furnish her house and build a kitchen. She states that she'll repay the loan in a timely fashion and apply for more loans again so that she can accomplish her plan.
