Raquel De Los Angeles's story

Raquel lives in a poor neighborhood in Managua with her husband and son, who goes to public school. The couple has fought hard, and have been building their house little by little. Raquel has always helped her husband, who works in a company but does not earn enough to cover all the family's necessary expenses. Raquel sells cosmetics, used clothing, footwear, and phone credits from her home, which provides her with a small income.

She is requesting this loan in order to further the construction of her home, as this is quite expensive. With this loan, she would like to add the roof, the flooring, and the windows, for which she needs construction materials such as metal roofing, beams, iron rebar, sand, cement, gravel, and windows with iron bars.
