Mariela Del Carmen's story

Young Mariela del Carmen lives in the Memorial Sandino neighborhood. She’s single and has no children. Her commercial activity is a grocery store and snack bar; her mother helps her always and together they’ve succeeded in getting ahead. Her goal is to continue investing in home infrastructure improvements so she’s opting for a second Afodenic and KIVA loan to add a room for more comfort and gradually organize her dwelling better. She will use the loan to buy cement, sand, blocks, rebar, roof purlins, metal sheeting and to pay labor costs.
