Melba Idania's story

Melba is a native of the municipality of San Rafael del Sur, Nicaragua. She has worked as a primary school teacher for six years.

Melba inherited a piece of land from her grandfather, and with her savings and a loan she began to buy construction materials to build her own home.

Melba is married with three young children, two of whom are school-age. She now has her own small, modest but very cozy home thanks to her efforts. She is requesting this loan to finish construction of the kitchen and to build an additional bedroom for her youngest child.
