A loan helped buy 12 sheets of steel, 6 rafters, and to pay someone to repair the garage, which collapsed in a strong wind.


Dina Esther's story

Dina is 30 years old and her husband is doing construction work outside the country. They have 3 children, one of whom is in school. Dina lives with her 3 children and her mother.

Dina has been a seamstress for two years now. She learned the skill from a course she took after finishing school. She has been practicing this skill and, now, she does small jobs for her friends, male and female. In addition, she has also learned to crochet. She does this work in her own home.

The loan Dina is requesting is for purchasing 12 sheets of steel and 6 rafters, and to hire someone to rebuild the garage, which collapsed in a strong wind. Having these repairs done would be of much help, since she is repairing her house so that her children can play there safely.

Dina's dreams are, with God's help, to be able to install a tailor shop and to teach others who are willing to learn. This is a source of income for her family and her children will have better living conditions. She hopes to achieve this with much effort.
