Josefa Nuvia's story

Josefa Nuvia lives in a poor neighbourhood of Managua. She has had a small business selling clothes, shoes, and many other products for several years. She covers half her family’s expenses, including the education of her 16-year-old daughter. Her husband works long days as a bus operator. Together they have built a foundation for the future of their family. Josefa is requesting the loan in order to purchase and offer more new products to her clients, such as clothes, shoes, ladies’ handbags, and cosmetics. She always has orders to fill, which allows her to back her loan with AFODENIC.
