A loan of $350 helped purchase construction material to build a wall.


Aleyda De Jesus's story

Doña Aleyda, aged 35, is an active woman who has worked in domestic services since the age of 18, when she began working because of the need to help her parents and to cover her own personal expenses. She lives in Lomas de Memorial Sandino district with a 9 year old daughter who is currently in second grade. Her husband works as a taxi cadet. She hasn't stopped working though so she can help with the household bill sand save money for their own house.

This is her sixth loan from Afodenic: her loans have been very beneficial and have already allowed her to improve her house and allow her family to enjoy a dignified home. With this loan she is going to purchase construction materials to make a wall in front of her house to provide security and better protection for their daughter. Their future plans are to be able to set-up a grocery store where she will be able to enjoy helping her daughter in the home.
