A loan of $650 helped to buy construction materials to make the wall and roofing of her house.

Melia Teresa's story

Melia, hardworking and with the desire for progress, works by herself in her home selling tortillas and "nacatamales" [Nicaraguan tamales], a business that has been a big help to the survival of her family at the same time as for the improvements on her house. For this reason she is grateful to AFODENIC, which has been the means for her to have achieved one of the biggest goals of her life, which is building her house.

With this new financing she will continue investing in the infrastructure of the wall and roofing of her home. This construction will use the following materials: concrete blocks, quarry stone, gravel, cement, rebar, support beams, sheets of corrugated metal, screws, and others.

Melia is satisfied and happy to carry out this new improvement to her home because it will allow her to have greater security for her house and her small children.
