Hilda's story

Meet Hilda, from the city of Waspam. She's 44 years old, and is married with 6 children. Four are all grown up and two are teenagers in high school. She hasn't changed the wood of her home in five years. With the goal of improving her home, she is requesting this first loan to 1) build the posts of her wood-frame home from concrete, 2) buy construction materials including iron, cement, and blocks, and 3) cover the costs of manual labor. Her dream is to one day have a two-story home made of concrete.
