Managua, Nicaragua / Personal Housing Expenses

A loan of $675 helped to buy a toilet, cement, cinder blocks, sand and pipes.


Mario De La Cruz's story

Mario is still doing the same work of selling scrap metal and air fresheners with his wife. They both earn their living selling these products.

He asked for his last loan for the installation of a bathroom, but he only bought part of the materials. He invested the rest in raw materials for making air fresheners, since he did not have enough products.

This time, he wishes to finish the construction that he has left half-done. He will buy a toilet, cement, cinder blocks, sand and pipes. He will also put in room dividers to give greater splendor to his home and offer greater comfort to his family.
