Anifa's story

Anifa is a widowed mother. She's 26 years old and has two children, an 8-year-old who studies and a one-year-old who hasn't reached school age. She's a teacher in one of the villages of the district and still lives with her parents. With the loan she intends to purchase cement and sand, and to pay for labor in order to start building her house. Her biggest dream is to own her own house, continue her studies and advance her career. Her biggest challenge is having to raise her children on her own in addition to studying, working and doing construction work.
