Nieves's story

Nieves is thirty-nine years old and is not married, although she lives with her partner and their five children. Her children are twelve, ten, eight, six, and four years old. Nieves is a leader who worked excellently with her communal bank and who now works individually. She sells men’s pants in the 16 de julio market, and she owns her stand. She lives with her husband and children. Her eldest got sick with appendicitis, but in spite of this situation, she was able to get ahead with the help of her family. Nieves is very hard-working and works well with her companions. Her goal is to see her children become professionals and to have a house of her own so she can make them more comfortable. She will use the loan money to purchase pants at wholesale prices for the cold season. Her previous loan helped her very much. Nieves is a hard-working person, and she is grateful to the institution for the support it has provided her.
