Angela's story

Doña Ángela Espinosa is 52 years old. She lives in the Laureles Norte neighborhood in the capital city of Managua. Her husband sells trout at the wholesale market. She has three children who are 13, 18 and 26 years old; two are on their own and one has a disability and needs greater care. With her work she tries to give a better future to her children. She has had a small tortilla-making business for the past 7 years and has a small but steady income. She started the business with money she had saved. With a loan from Afodenic she will buy materials such as cement, iron, zinc and tubing to make some improvements to her home.
