Eufemia Nicolasa's story

Doña Eufemia has her own business, a mini-bookstore that she manages out of her home. She is also retired and receives a pension. Her children are grown and independent.


During the ten loan cycles in which she has worked with AFODENIC, Eufemia has been able to make improvements to her home. With her previous loan, she was able to repair the wall at the back of her house. Today, with this new loan, she will continue with the work on the south wall and finish the enclosure of a room. She will buy materials such as sheets of zinc, iron, stone, cement, and other supplies that are needed to complete the work. Utilizing a loan is the only possible way for her to spread out her expenses.
