Maria De Los Santos's story

María is 42 years old, married, and her husband is a driver. She lives in the Casimiro Sotelo neighborhood in the capital city of Managua. She has two daughters, ages 23 and 12, who both are studying and help out their mother. Her plans have become a reality little by little, and she has had her house for 22 years which gives her more security and comfort for the family. She has made improvements to the home using micro-finance capital. María has a small business selling staple grains and fried foods, in which she has twelve years of experience. Her goals are to offer new products, attract new customers, and increase her sales. Thanks to the loans from Afodenic, she will manage to invest further in her business by buying new merchandise such as: staple grains, fruits, vegetables and cosmetics.
