A loan of $1,100 helped to purchase cement.


Cindy Kaina's story

Cindy lives in El Paraíso, located in Guayaquil (a peri-urban zone with a deteriorating ecosystem). She has a son and her husband is a bricklayer. They live in a house made of reeds. She works from 7am to 12pm as a teacher for the "Children International" program, which is a kindergarten for kids that meet in her house. With the help of her mother, she has been able to successfully run the kindergarten. However, because the kindergarten meets in her home and she does not have adequate means for the children she is requesting the loan which will be used to buy cement, cinder block and sand in order to build a better house. In the future she wants to finish building her house.
