A loan of $900 helped to make improvements to the rooms in her house as well as the roof.


Luisa Amanda's story

Luisa Amanda has continued to increase the sale of plastic items, which she does along with her husband. For years, they have gathered clientele from markets. The products are well-priced, and 80% of Nicaraguans buy plastic plates, coffee cups, soup bowls, and large and small buckets, since they are cheap and last a long time. Luisa has been building her house with savings and financing that she has received from AFODENIC. She has been able to make many improvements, similar to the improvements with her business. Today with this new loan she will be able to plaster the walls in her home, improve the roof (since it was very poorly installed), which will improve the well-being of her family.
