A loan of $975 helped to buy cement, sand, iron, blocks, and gravel for building a security wall around her home.

Maria Eugenia's story

María is a resident of the Waspam Sur neighborhood, which is located in a high crime area. She is now the mother of six children, with her oldest child being 17 and her youngest being only 1 year old. All of her children are dependent on her and husband, who work together from their horse-drawn cart. As traveling vendors, they sell corn on the cob, corn porridge, and rice pudding. All of these foods are traditional dishes in Nicaragua. Since María supports a large family, it can be very difficult since she has encountered low sales on numerous occasions.

With the loan she is requesting, María wants to build a portion of a security wall around her home. This will provide greater security for her children.
