Carmen Del Socorro's story

Carmen is 37 years old and lives in the Laureles Norte neighborhood of Managua. She continues her work as factory worker in a free trade zone. With her husband's support, she seeks ways to get ahead. Her 10 and 13-year-old children are still in school and her goal is that they become professionals. Carmen requests the loan in order to continue building the west side of the perimeter wall. She needs to purchase more supplies in order to move forward. This will provide safety for her children.
