A loan of $775 helped lay tile and paint her house.

Raquel Marie's story

Senora Raquel is married, 44, and has 2 children ages 19 and 22, a girl and a boy. Both children work and attend the university. She receives the support of her husband who works for the National Police, and she has been teaching at the upper level for 10 years in UNAN and UNA Universities Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. She is requesting her fifth loan, which she will use to put down a tile floor in her home, since it is a work in progress and the tiling has been started. She will also paint the whole house if the budget allows.

Professor Raquel has paid her loans on time, demonstrating her responsibility to the commitments she has undertaken. She is rated as an "A" client of this institution. She has demonstrated that she has not worked with any other financial institution because she does not like politics, but she feels very well-served with AFODENIC and the rules are more flexible. She says as well that she will keep working with her loans until she has completed all the improvements to her home that she and her family have always dreamed.
