Carolina Antonia's story

Carolina lives in a town near the city of Managua with her husband, who works as a security guard to help her with the household expenses. They have children who are students. Her plans for the family are to improve their living conditions. Carolina works as a teacher in a public school in the area. She needs the loan to improve the front part of her house, which is very insecure, and she has been robbed twice of the few possessions she had managed to acquire with great effort. This is why she decided to request her first loan to buy concrete blocks, cement, sand, and rebar, and to pay for labor. This way she'll give her children greater security.
