Urania De Jesús's story

Urania lives in Managua. She is married and, through much hard work and great effort, bought a small stand at the market in the capital city where she sells coffee and bread. She takes no time off because she believes that if she does not go to work she and her husband will not be able to feed and educate their children. Her husband works as a taxi driver and together they have raised their two children who attend primary and secondary school.

Urania is requesting a loan to renovate her home. She will put up new drywall, a cement floor, new doors and windows and will use the loan to buy the following materials: windows, doors, cement, sand and gravel.
