Betania Del Carmen's story

Betania works in the service sector. She has a mill where she processes maize to make tortillas, nacatamales, and baked goods. All of these maize-made products are popular foods in Nicaragua. In addition, she has a truck with which she sells construction materials such as cement blocks, sand, aggregate, and cement. Through this job she earns other money for her family's finances. She lives in her mother's house, however, bearing in mind she was recently married, she plans to become independent. She and her husband have planned together to build their own home in order to give their baby its own room. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy construction materials so she can realize her dream of owning her own house.
