A loan of $400 helped to buy construction materials.


Miriam Del Carmen's story

Miriam lives in the town of Ticuantepe with her husband, who has worked for a private business for several years. They have worked very hard to make their dream come true, which is finishing their house. She sells clothes and helps and helps with the household expenses. Their biggest difficulty is that they can't get all the money they need to do the improvements at one time. With this new loan, she will be able to buy the following materials: cement, sand, zinc sheeting, and beams to repair the back part of the house where she has a porch to shield from the rain and the sun.

She is very grateful to Afodenic, which through Kiva Funds has helped her with several loans.
