Maria De Los Angeles's story

Maria worked in her small business as a street vendor selling arroz de leche (rice pudding) and buñuelos (yuca fritters). She made seventy cups of arroz de leche and one hundred buñuelos every day, and in those years, she managed to gain many customers. That business was her means of covering her expenses, along with the support of her husband, who works as a cart driver.

Her living conditions are modest. Her goal has been to improve her house, which she had been building out of concrete. With financing that Afodenic gave in three cycles, she made short-term progress. [With this loan,] she will continue with the building of the front walls, and if her budget allows, purchase metal sheeting and beams for the roof.
