Mr. M. makes a living by repairing truck and bus tires, as well as other repairs. Currently he is requesting a loan for the purchase of work materials such as inner tubes, tires, and tools for straightening rims. It is important to emphasize his experience of more than 22 years in this activity, which has earned him a large clientele, especially because he works in a zone with a lot of transportation activity, near a company that produces cement.

This loan is administered by Centro de Promocion del Desarrollo Local (CEPRODEL), one of Kiva’s larger partners in Central America. Founded in 1991 and based in Managua, Nicaragua, CEPRODEL specializes in the development and funding of housing cooperatives for traditionally marginalized communities, the provision of microfinance services to small businesses, and the promotion of innovative renewable energy projects. In addition, unlike many microfinance institutions in the area that have chosen to avoid the rural areas of the country due to the increased financial risk, CEPRODEL provides financial services to numerous clients in the agriculture and livestock industry. Supporting a borrower through CEPRODEL means contributing to the promotion and sustainability of this important work in Nicaragua.
