Dinora Del Socorro
View original language description ↓
Dinora lives in the Memorial Sandino neighborhood. She is 63 years old, married and has five grown children. They all work. Her husband makes stoves and iron gates which are in high demand. Dinora started a small general store in her home four years ago. She also sells clothing to stores and the profits are good. Sometimes when the sales of clothing are slow she gets by with the general store. The loan she is requesting is to make improvements to her home. She wishes to lay ceramic tile in her living room and in one bedroom. This will make her home more comfortable.
