The young woman Blanca del Carmen lives in the beautiful town of El Sauce. She is single, and is twenty-six years old. She studies Business Administration and was raised with good principles and traditions.

She is requesting a loan to pay the final fees in order to get her License in Business Administration degree. With her low salary, she can only cover her personal and home expenses; she is responsible for the home where she lives with her parents.

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.
