Gladys J. is an elementary school teacher. She needs funding to do some home repair projects. She needs to buy zinc metal sheeting and pay labor costs.
The loans have been much help to her because she has collaborated with CEPRODEL for nine years and has had 14 loans. She invested them in her home.
"Nine years ago I didn't have a house and now I have a beautiful, pretty house. For all that I am grateful to CEOPRODEL for giving me the opportunity to have credit. I'm married and have a school-age son."

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.
