For several years Luz N. has been well known for being an excellent seamstress. Her establishment is located in the municipality of Ciudad Sandino in the city of Managua. She has stood out due to the fact that she has learned to make all kinds of suits in addition to shirts, pants, blouses, etc. The situation that she finds herself in today is that she needs to buy materials to continue working and they include scissors, thread, fabric, needles, measuring tape, etc. For this reason she hopes that Ceprodel will give her a loan in order to buy these materials and so that she benefits from her business.

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.
