Ana Maria's story

Ana María is a client who lives in an area close to Managua. Her husband works as a collections manager. Together they have four children under the age of 18, all of them students.

Ana's sewing business and the support of her husband facilitate the children's good development. In addition, they've managed to get ahead with the income from a mini-bookstore she set up two years ago.

She's choosing to get her first loan to build rooms so her children have their own space. She will need to buy cement, sand, cinder blocks, and rebar, and pay for labor.
