A loan of $400 helped to purchase clothing and jewelry.


Maria Elena's story

Maria Elena F. is 49 years old, married, and lives with her family in the Villa Reconciliacion neighborhood of Managua. Her husband is a security guard supervisor and they have two adult children who work in the free zone and one minor who is studying secondary school. Ten years ago Maria used her savings to start her jewelry sales business in order to help her husband meet household expenses since his salary is low. With this loan she will buy jewelry and clothing to sell thereby increasing her inventory and her sales. She thanks Afodenic for helping her grow since she has been involved in five loan cycles which she has been able to invest in her business.
