Maria Azucena
Maria Azucena is 42 years old, married, and resides in the Laureles Norte neighborhood of the capital, Managua. She has 3 children who are still students. Her husband is a messenger.

Maria, a housewife, plans to make improvements on her house. Her husband will contribute to make the remodeling of their little house possible. They want to install tile and improve a window in their house, so their children can enjoy a home that is safe and worthy, something she didn't have due to the limited financial resources of her parents. Today, it is difficult to construct a house by means of the limited available financing.

This will be Maria's 6th loan cycle with AFODENIC, and she wishes to thank them for helping her forge ahead with her housing.
