A loan of $350 helped to buy cement and sand and pay laborers.


María Lourdes's story

María Lourdes is a native of the city of El Sauce. For many years she has earned her living as a teacher. She has a lot of experience teaching children and she values the fact that through her work she has contributed "a grain of sand" toward Nicaragua's future.

She is a single mother of two sons. She has raised them successfully; they are good people like their mother.

She is currently requesting her second loan in order to continue improving her home. She will invest the loan in the purchase of cement and sand and in the payment of laborers to tile the entire house. Her aim is to allow herself and her sons to live in better conditions, which will improve their quality of life, thanks to the help these loans offer. Only through these loans can María Lourdes and the other clients of Kiva's partner fulfill their dreams.
