Maria Nicolasa's story

María Nicolasa is 45 years old and married. Her husband works as a driver on a school route. They have two children, both single, the oldest of whom is 22 years old. They work and study pharmacy and business administration at university.

María's dream is to see her daughters become great professionals. Towards this end, she works hard selling cosmetics and new clothes. She has used her previous loans to invest in her business, but she will use this loan to construct part of the front wall of her house, because currently water comes in from the street when it rains.

She also wants to raise the level of her plot of land. To accomplish this goal, she will buy cinderblocks, paving stone, cement, iron, sand, and gravel. Her objective is to improve the infrastructure of her home with the help of this loan.
