Mery Del Carmen's story

Mery del Carmen Pérez Martínez works as a caretaker at Managua's Manuel Olivares Institute. She is married and has two, school-age, children under her care. She has had two loans with CEPRODEL that she has used to improve her home.

The financing requested now will be used to buy building materials like flooring and cement for her home.

Mery told us that, thanks to CEPRODEL's loans, she has been making improvements to her home which has led to her having a safer home for her family.
