Sara Maria's story

Doña Sara, resident of a marginal neighborhood of Managua called Laureles Sur, is a hard-working woman. She struggles every day to afford her basic necessities. Her children are all grown and live independently from her. Sara is currently single and provides for the well-being of her home by herself through selling mail-order cosmetics and working as a concierge. With this loan, she wants to invest in raising the height of her home's walls as well as the border wall to guarantee safety for her home. Thankfully Sara has some of the materials, so it will be a bit easier to pay for the labor. In this way, she hopes to keep improving her home, little by little.
