Update on Dalia Sonia

Dalia Sonia is 51 years old and lives in San José, a small village five kilometres from the El Sauce municipality. Dalia is a mother to one son who is in high school.

Dalia has been making a living as a primary teacher for 30 years. She has spent half of her life working in the same school. This profession has helped Dalia to help her son to prosper. Dalia's son is the person whom she most loves in their life, and her great dream is to see that he is ready so that he can look after himself when she is gone.

Dalia is proud of her young son as he is very responsible and studious. Every day he wakes up early in order to cycle for one hour to El Sauce, as there is no secondary school in San José.

In recent months Dalia has been ill and so has come back to "Ceprodel" for a loan from Kiva investors. This loan will be used to buy medicines and to pay for medical exams and ultrasounds in order to improve her health and be at her best at work. Sonia does not want to fail her son, and wants him to be ready for adulthood with the help of God.

Additional Information


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.

Concurrent and Successive Loans

Our Field Partners often work with borrowers over a series of loans as the borrowers build credit, take out bigger loans, and expand their businesses. In order to make it easier for our Field Partners to post loans for borrowers who have been listed on Kiva before, we allow them to post successive and concurrent loans for their Kiva borrowers. This means that our Field Partners are able to post a borrower's second, third, etc., loan on Kiva without having to re-enter all of the borrower's information.

This borrower has been listed on Kiva before, so you'll see an updated loan description, as well as excerpts of the original descriptions from earlier loans. Most borrowers take out loans consecutively, meaning that they receive a second loan after having repaid the first. However, sometimes our Field Partners give out concurrent loans, allowing borrowers to take out one primary loan and a secondary "add-on" loan along with it. These "add-on" loans are typically smaller than the borrower's primary loan and serve a different purpose. Because Field Partners can now post loans as successive and concurrent loans, you will be able to track borrower progress over time and see the various ways a borrower is working with our Field Partners through funds from Kiva’s lenders.
