A loan of $400 helped to expand and improve her house.

Martha's story

Our borrower, from Waspam, is 40-years old and married with 5 school-aged children. She has 11-years of cooking experience and works at the local hospital. Her husband is a farmer. She is applying for a loan that she will use to expand and improve her house. The investment will allow her to pay for the labor and materials--800-feet of lumber, nails, roofing material--she needs for the project. Her hopes for the future are to provide her children with a decent place to live and a good education.
