A loan of $450 helped to buy construction materials.


Miriam Auxiliadora's story

Miriam and her children live in the town of Ticuantepe. She is a single mother. Despite the economic hurdles she faces, she has been able to get ahead with her modest home, which she managed to build with her previous loan. Now her project is to build her kitchen, since she currently cooks using and outdoor stove. This bothers her a lot because she works as a cook at a restaurant and she gets home very late, sometimes at dawn, and she can't make herself a cup of coffee because it takes a long time to light her stove. She is thankful for the help she has received from Afodenic through Kiva's funding, as many people have benefited from their support and been able to develop as individuals.
