A loan of $500 helped purchase materials for a roof and construction of a room in her house.

Silvia Elena's story

Mrs.Silvia lives in the Hialeah neighborhood of the city of Managua, her husband is a builder and they have three children, 7,15 and 18 years old. She is 35 years old and her business is a small general store which she has been running for the last four years. She started the store in order to help her husband with the home expenses, and she plans to finish her house and help their children with their education. She will use the proceeds of this loan to purchase construction materials for a roof of a room that they have been building little by little. What she most wants is to have a proper home that will be safe for her family. She has the advantage of not needing to pay for labor since her husband is doing the building. This is her second loan with Afodenic and she is thankful for the goals that she has been able to achieve. She plans to sell more products in the future that will generate good income.
