Georgina Marisela's story

Georgina L. is a hard-working woman who begins her day early in the morning to complete her chores as a housewife so that she can then make tamales to sell. She is 37 years old, lives in the Villa Reconciliacion neighborhood of Managua and is married to her civil engineer husband. They have three children who are full-time students. In the past she sold soup but then began selling meals in order to increase her profits to meet family needs. With this loan, her sixth, she intends to buy building materials: tile, wood, dry wall, flooring, to build a breakfast nook to better serve her customers. She is grateful to the institution for goals met.
