Sereno del Socorro is from the municipality of El Sauce, where she has lived all her life. She is a single mother who has struggled day after day with her small salary to help her children get ahead and make them into good men.
One of her greatest dreams is to prepare her sons to be professionals and see the construction of her home finished, so that she has a dignified place to live. It is for this reason that she is requesting her seventh loan, to buy zinc, bricks and to pay for labor, so that she can make an addition to her home. Thanks to these loans she has been able to improve her home, because with her small salary it would not have been possible.

This loan is administered by Centro de Promocion del Desarrollo Local (CEPRODEL), one of Kiva’s larger partners in Central America. Founded in 1991 and based in Managua, Nicaragua, CEPRODEL specializes in the development and funding of housing cooperatives for traditionally marginalized communities, the provision of microfinance services to small businesses, and the promotion of innovative renewable energy projects. In addition, unlike many microfinance institutions in the area that have chosen to avoid the rural areas of the country due to the increased financial risk, CEPRODEL provides financial services to numerous clients in the agriculture and livestock industry. Supporting a borrower through CEPRODEL means contributing to the promotion and sustainability of this important work in Nicaragua.
