Carolina Elizabeth's story

Carolina is 38 years old. She lives in her own house with her husband and their two children. She owns a store, located at her place of residence, and her sales allow her to cover the expenses that come up in her household.

Carolina wants to improve her house by constructing an outer wall in the location shown in the photograph. The rains wash away the earthen wall that is there currently, but with what she earns from sales, she is not able to carry out her plan. For this reason, she is requesting a loan to purchase sand, cement, brick, and iron and to pay for labor to construct the wall. In this way, she and her family can live more securely.
