A loan of $925 helped to build a wall.


Tereza Del Carmen's story

Señora Tereza lives in the municipality of Ticuantepe, with her two daughters aged 23 and 14. The elder daughter works and contributes to the household expenses and younger daughter studies and helps out with household chores. Señora Teresa is a single mother and has worked for the Ministry of Health for 16 years. During this time, with great effort, she has been able to build her home. She now needs support to build a wall for the house, as on several occasions her house has been broken into. The house is empty all day as Señora Tereza goes to work very early and does not get back until the evening. She is grateful for the trust placed in her by Kiva Field Partner, Afodenic, who, through the Kiva fund, is providing her with a loan to buy construction materials for the wall. With this loan she will be able to enjoy better living conditions, especially for her daughters who are at an age where they need good security. This investment will bring her greater peace of mind, as she has no family to support her.
