Yelba Rosa's story

Mrs. Yelba Rosa M. is 48 years old, married, and has grown children. She lives in the La Luz neighborhood of Managua and sells naca-tamales and soups for a living. She is also the owner of a Taxi unit, which helps.

She plans to buy building materials with this loan so she can fix her roof so her home is in good condition for family. Her husband originally gave her money to start her business. He is an accountant with a private company. They would both like to improve their home and be able to enjoy the benefits of work.

She gets up early in the morning to make the dough and vegetables for her delicious tamales. She has many customers since they are so tasty and affordable.

She is grateful to this institution for giving her the opportunity to invest and make some home improvements. These opportunities are beneficial for all Nicaraguan citizens so they can fulfill their desires for their families in a satisfactory way. For various reasons many people are unable to have their own home and this causes a lot of anxiety. It this through these loans that we can get ahead.
