Mayra Del Socorro
Doña Mayra Hernández was born in the capital of Managua, where she has built her family, her husband, a foreman, and her two children. She is 46 years old and works as the housekeeper for a foreign functionary. With her husband’s earnings and her own, she has saved up to now have a small shop in her home, which is run by her daughter, to cover basic costs of water, power, telephone and food. Thanks to God, she has improved her home, but the roof is in disrepair, thus she wants to fix it and add a purlin because it is very low and, furthermore, very old so that the need is urgent to repair it in the next few months so that they won’t have to worry in the winter. The good news is that the labor won’t cost, because her husband does the work, which is more expensive. She has had various loans with the institution to improve her home. Her goal is to be able to invest more to increase the inventory in her business and improve the utilities.
