Suyen Damaris's story

Suyen is a friendly woman and a native of Puerto Cabezas. She is 27 years old, married, and has a three-year old son. For approximately ten years she has lived in a small house made of wood. Now she wishes to have a concrete house so she is seeking a loan to buy construction materials: cement, cement blocks, steel rods, zinc sheeting, nails, fine sand, coarse sand, and hire laborers to do the work. Her dream is to have safe house in which to live a decent life.
