Martha Ligia's story

Martha Ligia is a young, single, entrepreneur. She has a pre-school aged nephew who is like a son to her and he depends on her for support. She lives with her parents in Juigalpa Chontales and works as a public school elementary school teacher. She has been making improvements to the house she lives in. With great effort and sacrifice, she was able to close off the part behind the kitchen and it’s now more secure. She needs to buy cement, pebbles, iron bars, and pay for labor, so she can build a room in the front part of the house. This improvement will benefit her and her family so they can live in home that provides more comfort and privacy.
