A loan of $500 helped to buy construction materials such as tile and paint.


Flor De María's story

Flor de María is 31 years old and single. She is from Matagalpa, a city located in northern Nicaragua that is of great importance for its large production of coffee and vegetables.

Flor has one school-aged son in her care, and currently she has been working as a janitor for a state company for more than four years. Her salary is earmarked for the household expenses.

She is applying for a loan in order to buy construction materials such as tile and paint, as she needs to carry out some improvements to her home. Only through this loan would she be able to undertake this improvement, as using money from her salary is a little more difficult.
