Leonto Leonel
View original language description ↓

Leonto R. is described as a hard-working gentlemen who has for quite a while dedicated himself to agriculture in his home town of the municipality of El Sauce in the city of León.

Mr. R. and his family are currently in need of assistance: since they live in an area where there is no conventional electricity, they have requested the installation of a solar panel to help out with household chores and the children's studies. That's why they're turning to Ceprodel to earn credits that will permit them to get out of the debt they acquired with the panel; that way he can provide his family with better conditions in life so that his children can study in the afternoon and evenings, become great professionals, and make their dear father's dreams come true.

Translated from Spanish by Shannon Skoglund, Kiva volunteer.

Leonto R. se caracteriza por ser un caballero muy trabajador que desde hace mucho tiempo se dedica al negocio de la agricultura en su local de habitación en la ciudad de León específicamente en el municipio de El Sauce.

Una necesidad por la que transcurre el señor R. y su familia es que a pesar que viven en un local donde no se cuenta con energía eléctrica han solicitado que le instalen un panel solar para apoyarse con los quehaceres del hogar y el estudio de sus hijos por tal razón acude a Ceprodel para obtener crédito que le permita salir de esta deuda que contrajo con la adquisición del panel y así poder brindarle a su familia mejores condiciones de vida para que sus hijos puedan estudiar por las tardes y noches para llegar a ser grandes profesionales que es el sueño de su querido padre.
