A loan of $1,175 helped to buy construction materials for improvements to her home.


Maria Magdalena's story

Maria T. is a 32-year-old married woman who lives in Villa del Carmen in the Managua area. Her husband helps her financially. She has a 7-year-old son and lives with her parents in her own house. The goal that she would most like to accomplish is to complete construction of her house. She is an entrepreneurial woman who wants the best for her family. She has worked for eight months as a proprietary town councilor in the mayor's office of Villa del Carmen. While trying to accomplish her goals, she has encountered various difficulties, one of which is the lack of financing. She thanks the Institution for the loan that they granted her, which will allow her to buy some of the construction materials, such as cement, wnidows and zinc, and thereby make a change in her home as well as her life.
