Maria Elena's story

Doña Maria is a surgical technician who works in a hospital in the capital city. She has two school-aged children and her husband is a salesman. Her goal is to finish her house which requires the drywall, a roof and flooring, but she is content to be able to do a little each day. She is also happy about finishing her education because of the benefits to the family. It took a lot of effort to earn her degree. Through Afodenic she was able to buy the expensive books she needed.

She plans to use the loan to buy zinc sheeting, sand, cement, supports, screws and pay for the work. She hopes to be able to move into the new house soon with the family, which is their greatest wish.
