Senora Eusebia is a single mother of 3 children and has run her own shop in the central market for 14 years. She opens the shop at 6am and closes at 5pm every day except Sunday. Sometimes one of her children help her with the business. She began this business with the help of her oldest son, who is outside of the country. Eusebia says that her business used to be much smaller because she never had enough inventory. With the help of the Ceprodel loans she has been able to grow. She says she now has more inventory, and thanks God for the loans she's been given, which have enabled her to continue.

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.
