Elbira's story

Doña Elvira is 46 years old and lives in the neighborhood, Manuel Fernández, in the capital of Managua with her four older children who work. Her business is a general store that she started several years ago with her savings and financing from Afodenic. Her plans are to be able to improve her house and to continue supporting her children. With this loan, she is in her seventh cycle and will buy a variety of products for her general store such as: basic grains, milk products, meats, sweets, etc. in order to increase sales and to have better profits. She is thankful for this institution for the opportunity that she has had to be able to invest in her business.
