A loan of $525 helped to buy rebar, wire, cement, sand, cement blocks, and pay for labor.

Guadalupe Del Socorro's story

Guadalupe lives in the Memorial Sandino neighborhood in the city of Managua. She has three children who go to school and depend on her. Her partner works as a security guard, and with his income contributes to the household expenses. She works as a janitor in a public school.

This is her first loan with Afodenic, and is for building a perimeter wall for her home. She has to build it in the form of an "L," so that it can provide security and a sense of well-being to her family. This is because they live in an area that is a bit sparsely populated, and is dangerous for the children. So she needs to buy rebar, wire, cement, sand and cement blocks, as well as pay for labor.
