Maricruz's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase construction materials such as cement and to pay for labor.
Young Maricruz is a teacher that lives in the municipality of Condega, 35 km north of the city of Esteli. She is happily married and has two children, one of them school-age. She is an active teacher, working for the Nicaragua Ministry of Education teaching primary school in the urban center of Condega. She teaches from 7:00 AM -12:00 PM Monday through Friday and in the afternoons she plans the classes for the following day. She has been working for the Ministry continuously for thirteen years. It is the primary source of income for her family to defray costs. Maricruz approaches Ceprodel to request a loan to be able to continue making improvements on her home. She has been remodeling it over time with previous loans awarded to her by Ceprodel. She has been grateful for the help that Ceprodel has provided because her monthly income is not enough to cover these costs on her own. A loan with a considerable payment period allows her to pay over time in fair installments. She hopes to continue improving the conditions of her home. She hopes that the loan she is requesting is approved so with time she will be able to give her family the home they deserve and improve their way of life.
