El Sauce is located 90 kilometers from León Department. It’s a pretty town surrounded by beautiful nature. Most of the clients are merchants and some provide services to various institutions. The beautiful Lord of Miracles Sanctuary is located here and it receives annual pilgrimages in its honor coming from various Nicaraguan cities.

Yasmina owns her house in El Sauce and she’s currently working as an elementary school teacher in a local school. She comments that she got her house thanks to Kiva and Ceprodel loans and the reason why she’s asking for a new loan is to install the floor in her house.

The loan will be used to buy sand, bricks and cement and to pay labor costs. She’s aware that Kiva and Ceprodel help this type of person with these needs so she hopes that she will continue to get help with loans because they have made it possible for her and her family to live in better conditions.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes.
