Mercedes De Jesús
In the beautiful city of Santa Rosa del Peñón, in the department of León, there are many different commercial activities. Mercedes de Jesús is a young woman who is known for her dedication to work.

Mercedes is in need of a loan from Kiva and Ceptrodel, which she will pay back over a 14-month period. She plans to buy wood and corrugated metal to repair the roof of her house, since the harsh seasonal rain has caused much damage to her dwelling.

She is a single mother of two children and works at the health center. Her salary cannot be stretched to cover household improvement, so she is requesting a loan from Kiva and Ceprodel so she can put her income to better use.

For the time being all she has is her honesty, good credit record, good health and dedication to work. This will allow her to pay back the loan on time.

"First of all, I want to thank God for having sent me to Ceprodel and Kiva, who I hope will continue giving me loans so I can improve my family's living conditions."

About CEPRODEL

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.

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. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
