A loan helped to pay for her son's tuition and graduation expenses.

Eduarda Lucrecia's story

Sra. Eduarda Lucrecia has worked as a janitor for three years at a school in the city of León. She is the mother of five children, but only one is still under her care.

Doña Eduarda leaves her house at 6:00 A.M. so that she can begin her work at 7:00 A.M. She finishes her job by 2:30 P.M. and works the same schedule Monday through Friday.

Eduarda is requesting her first loan from CEPRODEL so that she can cover the graduation expenses and next year’s tuition for her child. Her dreams include seeing her son complete his professional degree.
