A loan of $600 helped to buy medicine and pay for ultrasound exams.

Vilma's story

Vilma is a 52 year old married lady, mother of five children, who are all independent. She is originally from "Mina (Mine) La India", municipality of Santa Rosa del Peñón. As its name shows, it is a mining place, where gold exploitation for sale is its main activity. Vilma has taught elementary school for more than thirty years, a profession that has allowed her to prepare her children professionally. Currently she takes care of two grandchildren, which she does to help one of her daughters who is working outside the town. Vilma went to the Ceprodel office for the first time requesting a loan from Kiva to buy medicine and pay for ultrasound exams, so she can improve her health because she has not been feeling well lately. Her main goal is to get better to continue performing well in her job and help her children as long as God gives her life.
