A loan helped to construct a concrete bathroom.


Edigna Edelma's story

Edina Edelma is a hardworking 46 year old woman. She is of the Miskito ethnic group from the City of Bilwi, in the town of Puerto Cabezas. She is married and has five children. Two are in college and three are in middle school. Her husband works as a mason, outside the formal economy.

She seeks financing to build a concrete bathroom and to buy construction materials to begin constructing their own well, as they currently have access to water through a community well. She dreams of having a house made of concrete, as it would be safer and more durable.
