Nimia Del Socorro
View original language description ↓
Nimia, a 50-year old teacher, has worked in various pre-school levels in the Caracolitos Negors. She is a single mother of four children (three girls and one boy). One daughter works, and the other three are studying at the university. Since birth she has lived in her mother’s house, which she inherited. The dwelling is constructed of “taquesal” (mud and wood) and it has a roof made of mud tiles. She wants to preserve the structure given she considers it historical, and with previous credits she has been able to make some small maintenance repairs. This eighth loan would help her to raise a new wall, to replace one that is crumbling, and also to make repairs to the roof. She is a person who is much-appreciated by her young students, as well as by the educational community for her responsible nature, her honesty and prestige among the teaching profession. She states she wants to continue working with AFODENIC for the attention they provide and for the loans which have been very opportune in her life.
