A loan of $850 helped to buy cement, iron, concrete blocks, sand, tie wire and support boards.

Silvia Elena's story

Silvia is married, and she has a business selling nacatamales [Nicaraguan style tamales] and basic staple foods. Through this means she has been able to help her family get ahead. She is requesting this loan to carry out improvements to her house. In this case, she will construct a concrete wall for one of the rooms of her house, replacing a wall that is in poor condition. For this, she needs to buy construction materials such as cement, iron, concrete blocks, sand, tie wire and boards to support the concrete. All of this is possible thanks to the loans which AFODENIC provides to her in conjunction with Kiva. It is very important for her, since thanks to these loans she has been able to make many changes in her home and to improve her business.
