A loan of $650 helped to buy blocks, cement, sand, iron and wire, and to pay labor costs.


Alba Marina's story

Alba is a young woman who, together with her partner, sells vegetables and basic grains in Managua’s main markets. This is how she provides for food, basic living costs and her two children’s education. Her children are still young and go to elementary school. Her greatest dream is to see each of them with a professional career.

Alba is requesting her first loan from AFODENIC to build a perimeter wall behind her house. To do this, she will need to buy blocks, cement, sand, iron, and wire. She will also need to pay for the labor. Her only objective is to provide better living conditions and safety for her family.
