Editza's story

Mrs. Editza M. has asked AFODENIC to refinance her second loan to invest in home improvements (construct an additional room). She lives in the #6 zone of Nueva Guinea, and has worked in the library in the URACCAN Recinto Nueva Guinea University for nine years. She has two children. Her son is 11 years old and he is in the third grade. Her daughter is 9 years old and is also in the third grade. Editza's husband works as a bricklayer and helps cover the costs of keeping a home. Editza is a woman of high spirits and a desire to get ahead. She's very responsible, and loves her work. She dreams of finishing her studies as a zoologist, keeping herself and her family in good health, and finishing construction on her house in order to provide better living conditions for her family.
