Edwin's story

San Juan de Limay is a municipality belonging to Estelí Department; it’s widely known for its crafts and hardworking people in animal husbandry. It was chosen for a program of creating alliances to strengthen local skills for Nicaragua’s recovery. Edwin, 35, lives here. He’s married and is a legal assessor for the municipal government. His nuclear family consists of his wife and son.

He’s currently applying for the water and sewage project by means of financing to improve the bathroom in his house because it does not have the necessary conditions; he needs to buy an economic toilet, wash basin, pipes with potable water connections and Econosan 1,300-liter tank plus to pay labor costs because they know how important it is to use an improved sewage system.

By means of this alliance, his family can access this project that’s benefiting several municipalities in the country which will lead to improved standard of living and help to lessen environmental deterioration. These programs help the poorest families and this is why these projects need to be aimed at the most vulnerable sectors of the country.
