Maria Abigail's story

Maria Abigail is a 66 year old teacher and is single. She has worked for MINED for 20 years as an elementary school teacher in a rural school where the gives the gift of knowledge to the children of the community.

She is requesting her tenth loan with the objective to continue improving her house, building an annex that will provide more comfort and space. With the previous loan she was able to build a wall and repair the roof of her house, improving her family's living conditions a little. She hopes to be able to continue with the support of Kiva and Afodenic to be able to see her dream become reality, a nice and secure home for her family.
