A loan of $925 helped building a kitchen.

Claribel Del Carmen's story

Claribel is 55 years old and has 4 children. Two of them are adults who have formed their own households, and two, aged 15 and 17, attend school and still depend on her economically. Claribel has worked as a teacher at the Cèsar Augusto Salinas Pinell School for the past 28 years, on Saturdays and Sundays. On weekdays, she works as a librarian for the Municipality of Nueva Guinea. This work provides her with a monthly income to support her family. Although she is a single mother, she has worked hard to make sure that her children do not lack the basic necessities at home.

This is the second time that she has obtained financing through Kiva. This time, it will be used to finish building the kitchen which she began with the previous loan.

Her dream is to continue improving the infrastructure of her home, little by little, and to see her children finish their studies, so that they will be successful people.
