Iris Consuelo's story

Doña Iris is 48 years old. Her partner works as an instructor at a university. They have two children, ages 25 and 26, both of whom are dependents and working.

Iris has a business selling bananas at a market in Managua. The bananas she sells are from her farm that is managed by one of her children. The loan she is requesting will be used to build a porch for her house in order to provide more comfortable conditions for her family. As a result, this construction project will expand her house, thus allowing her grandchildren to play freely.

Iris needs to buy cement, blocks, sand, iron, and gravel. She will also pay for labor so that the work can continue.
