A loan of $475 helped to buy fabric, embroidered items and threads. To buy supplies for making food to sell at weekends.

Jacqueline Del Socorro's story

Jacqueline has three children. She is married and works as a dressmaker. She has been in this business for more than fourteen years, supporting her family. Her husband works as a mechanic and a welder. He is very responsible

On weekends, Jacqueline also makes soup and 'nactamales' (Nicaraguan tamales - steamed corn dumplings with a savory filling, wrapped in a plantain leaf) to help make more income. This way she manages to fulfil her payment commitments. Jacqueline is happy as Afodenic has been a door to change and improvement, allowing her to invest in her clothes sales business. She will use this new loan to buy fabric, embroideries and threads for her sewing as well as supplies so that she can make more food to sell at weekends.
