A loan of $525 helped to purchase sand, cement, blocks, iron and gravel.


Julia Damiana's story

Julia lives in a well-known barrio in Managua. Her husband is always working as a driver, and they have two children who are in school. Julia has worked to provide them with life's necessities with her small business selling corn tortillas for the past three years. It is very hard work, since she gets up very early because it takes a long time to process the corn, and the profits aren't enough on their own, so she also works as a domestic servant at a particular home. Now she is requesting her third loan to build a room so her children can be more comfortable, for which she needs to purchase sand, cement, blocks, iron and gravel so she can start the work.
