A loan of $1,075 helped to buy tiles and cement.


Maria Elena's story

María, 23, is married and lives in the Ciudad Sandino neighborhood. Her husband works as a surgical technician in a public hospital. She works as a receptionist in a state institution. This is how this young couple seeks to get ahead in life. They don't have children yet and, before they do, they want to make it a priority to improve their home. This is why with this first loan she'll improve the floor of the house, because it's in bad condition. She'll buy cement and tiles to begin the work.
