A loan of $1,150 helped purchase of zinc and beams to replace roof.

Mireya Del Socorro's story

Mireya is requesting her fourth loan to invest in making improvements to her home, including replacing the roof with new zinc paneling and beams before the winter rains arrive. For two years, Mireya has worked as a delegate at the Nicaraguan Social Security Institute, and she is the mother of two children. Her eldest child is 20 years old and a sophomore at URACCAN (the University of the Regions of the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua), and her 17-year-old is in the fifth year of secondary school. Her husband works as a technician in a fruit processing plant and spends his free time working at their family farm. They both share responsibility for household expenses and financial obligations.

Mireya is a woman who began working when she was very young, since her family had few financial resources. She carries out her work in a very responsible manner, and feels happy to be able to help her family however she can. She is highly motivated to get ahead, and her dream is to little by little improve her standard of living so that her family wants for nothing.
