Nicolasa Carolina's story

Nicolasa is 43 years old and a small business owner. She has sold tortillas for several years. She lives with her family.

She started with a little money that her husband gave her and that was the beginning for her and later she was able to increase her sales. She has worked with Afodenic for ten cycles and has been able to improve her home and invest in her tortilla business which is her source of income and how she pays for her personal expenses.

With this loan she will build a wall which will give her house more security and sanitation. This was what the last loan was intended for, but she was unable to use it for that because she had to change the roof on her house as that was more urgent.

No she will buy: stones, sand cement, and iron and she will start to build the wall. In this way, she will be able to start the project and enjoy the benefits through the financing.
