Marcia De Jesus's story

Marcia is 37 years old and married to Mr. Wilber Duarte, with whom she has two children: 7 year old Wilber, who is in second grade, and a little 20-month daughter named Milagros. Marcia has worked at the Asuncion de Juigalpa Hospital for 13 years as a nurse. Her husband is also a nurse, but he works at the Health Center of Santo Domingo. She is asking for her ninth loan and hopes to be able to rely upon Kiva's support. She wants to tile her living room, and since the baby is of an age to play on the floor she wants to complete this little project as soon as possible to avoid illnesses. If there is money left over, she would like to make improvements to the bathroom. She shares that thanks to the loans provided to her by this institution, she has been improving her house little by little, building a kitchen and tiling the bedrooms and the dining room.
