Maria's story

María has once more requested a loan given her need to construct a porch on her house. She has been improving her property with the help of loans as it is difficult to build with only her salary. So she has to plan for accessible quotas so she can also cover her other expenses and not upset the financial stability of her household. She works as a teacher in a public school. Her two oldest children are independent and her youngest studies in primary school. She is single and she has to support her youngest son. He is what inspires her to make improvements to the condition of her home. She proposes to buy construction materials like cement, re-bar sand and to pay for labor to construct her porch.
