Cecil Mariela's story

Cecil, always working alongside her husband in a free trade zone in Nicaragua, with her savings from selling products from catalogs door to door, has been able to earn a living and help her three young children get ahead. Her children are all under 11 years old and go to school. Cecil's biggest dream is to see them grow up to have professional careers. Her goal with each loan is to make improvements to her home. With this fourth loan, Cecil is looking to make improvements to the kitchen. She will buy concrete blocks, cement, sand, iron, gravel, and zinc in order to make her kitchen safer and improve her house.
