A loan of $550 helped to buy construction supplies and to cover the labor costs.

Julia Elaine's story

She's a happy woman from Waspam and the single mother of two adult children who are in college. The oldest one studies sociology at a university in the town of Puerto Cabezas; the younger one, 20, studies at a university in Managua.

She wants to improve her wood house on stilts, so she's requesting her second loan to buy construction materials (poles, nails, wood, and metal sheeting) and cover the labor costs.

Her dream is to finish building her house and keep on helping her children complete their studies.
