A loan of $975 helped to construct a 24 x 12 foot concrete addition and buy materials: 700 blocks, 30 bags of cement, iron, fine sand, and coarse sand.


Jean Ladylee's story

This is a hard-working and friendly woman. She is married, is 25 years old, and has an 8-year-old son who is in the fourth grade in primary school. Her husband works informally; he is a taxi driver. She is applying for her first loan to build a 24 x 12 foot concrete addition and to buy materials: 700 blocks, 30 bags of cement, iron, fine sand, and coarse sand. The addition will be used for bedrooms: one for her son and the other for her and her husband. Now they have a living room and kitchen, which are used as a single space. Her dream is to have her own business, a clothing store in her home.
