Letty's story

Letty has a school in the north of the city. Letty founded the school with a loan from her famiily for the construction and with help from her husband and local residents because there was no school in that neighborhood. She will use this loan to purchase school supplies to help the parents of her students finance their education. She is sure that with this assistance her students will be motivated and supported since students generally have a hard time financially. Letty is 26 years old, married and has two children. She is dependent on this business to support her family. Letty is sure that this loan will give her family financial security and will help her improve the quality of their home.
