A loan of $625 helped to buy zinc sheeting.


Paula Argentina's story

Paula lives with her husband and children in the Concepción Masaya municipality. Her plans for the future are to improve their living conditions and improve her house. Paula has been selling fruit and vegetables at the Managua market for several years. This has been the way that she has managed to support her family. Paula only has her working capital, and it does not cover the purchase of zinc sheeting, beams, and nails, etc. These items are to change the roof of her house because when it rains water comes in everywhere. The zinc sheeting is in very bad condition because of how old it is. She is grateful for the support from Afodenic through a Kiva loan. With the loan she will be able to buy the materials she needs to do the job.
