Elvis Yamil's story

Elvis is a young man, who lives in a municipality close to the capital, Managua. He works as a secretary in a government institution. His wife is a cashier. They have had difficulties paying back their previous loan because of problems with their daughter’s health. They work for the well-being of their daughter, so that she can have a good university education and get ahead in life.

Elvis is requesting a loan for the third time to put up a wall in the rear part of his house. This is because when it rains, all the running water comes into their home. He will buy cement, sand, stone, blocks, iron, purlins, zinc, and wire. In this way, he will repair their home little by little.
