María Lizett
María Lizett is from the Achuapa municipality. Her town devotes itself mostly to commerce in order to survive.

She has two daughters, and only one of them is school age. María Lizett studied for a career in education. She currently works as a pre-school teacher.

In order to get more income she got a mill a little while ago. She did this to provide service to the residents of her municipality.

She is very grateful to Kiva and Ceprodel. Thanks to the loans they have granted, she now has a better standard of living. This is because her income from her new business has improved.

In order to provide a new service to her customers, she is requesting a loan to buy a meat grinder. She wants to do this in order to take advantage of the fact that this type of business does not exist in her town.

She hopes that Kiva will continue supporting her so that she can continue improving her standard of living and that of her family.

Doña María Lizett es originaria del municipio de Achuapa, pueblo que se dedica en su mayoría al comercio para sobrevivir.

Es madre de dos hijas solamente una de ellas a su cargo en edad escolar, estudió la carrera de Magisterio y actualmente se desempeña como profesora donde imparte clases a niños de preescolar.

Con el propósito de tener mejores ingresos hace poco tiempo adquirió un molino para brindar el servicio a los pobladores de dicho municipio.

Se siente muy agradecida con Kiva y Ceprodel porque gracias a los préstamos que le han otorgado hoy tiene mejor nivel de vida porque sus ingresos han mejorado con su nuevo negocio.

Con el fin de brindar un nuevo servicio a sus clientes está solicitando un crédito para comprar un molino para moler carne, ya que quiere aprovechar la ventaja que en este poblado no hay este tipo de negocio.
Espera que Kiva le siga apoyando para seguir mejorando su nivel de vida tanto de ella como de su familia.

Supporting a borrower through CEPRODEL means contributing to the promotion and sustainability of this important work in Nicaragua.
