Magdalena Asuncion's story

Magdalena is 58 years old, single and has three grown-up children who all have their own families. She has worked for the Nicaraguan Ministry of Education as a teacher for the past 22 years. She teaches at the New Horizons School which is located in Juigalpa's prison system. She is requesting her 18th loan and hopes to continue receiving loans from Kiva so that she can continue improving her home. This time she would like to buy materials to build her living room and porch. Magdalena's biggest dream is to be able to finish her house because it is what she will have to leave her children. She says that when she pays off this loan she will request another so that she can continue improving her house.
