Maria De Jesus
View original language description ↓
Maria C. is a merchant. She has a site in the bustling Managua market where she sells breakfast. She began construction on several bedrooms in her house, but due to a lack of funds, she has not been able to finish them. She needs to finish the construction because her house is getting too small for the six family members that live with her.

Translated from Spanish by Joanne Egnatchik, Kiva volunteer

Maria C. es comerciante. Tiene un local en un populoso mercado de Managua, se dedica a la venta de desayunos. Empezó la construcción de unos cuartos de habitación en su vivienda, pero debido a la falta de dinero no los ha podido finalizar, tiene la necesidad de terminar esta construcción porque su casa se está volviendo muy pequeña para los 6 familiares que viven con ella.
