A loan of $650 helped to buy cement, blocks, sand, iron, wire ties and planks and to pay for the labor to build a front wall for her house.


Hilda Sofia's story

Hilda is 36 years old and a resident of the city of Managua. She is married with three children aged 19, 13 and a 9-month-old baby. The two older children are students. Hilda has been working daily for approximately five years selling cosmetics and clothing, in order to provide for her family along with her husband. This is her first loan with AFODENIC. With this loan she will build a front wall for her house, for which she needs to buy cement, blocks, sand, iron, wire tires and planks and to pay for the labor. Only with the support of financing will she be able to carry out this work, since she does not have sufficient capital. However, with the loan it will be a little easier, and it will benefit her family by allowing them to live in better conditions.
