A loan of $350 helped to buy paint, cement and pay workers.

Lizeth María's story

Lizbeth María is originally from the municipality of El Sauce. She is a young woman who brings home the daily bread by giving classes to children in 1st grade in a neighboring region to the above-mentioned municipality. She has spent several years working in this trade.

It is worth mentioning that she has a lot of desire to overcome, to provide her children better living conditions in her home and to prepare them as professionals and good people that learn to take care of themselves in the future.

It is for this motive that she visited Ceprodel with the hope that they grant her first loan, to better the conditions of a bedroom, with which she will buy paint and cement and pay the workers. For this she trusts in God that they approve her request to carry out her objective and she hopes for a long relationship with this institution, which she doesn't wish to disappoint.
