Digna's story

Digna lives in the town of El Sauce, located in the western area of the department of León. She's a 48-year-old lady who's married with three children. Two of her daughters are professionally trained and they're currently in the workforce, and her son is studying in order to have a career as well. Thanks to her career as a nurse, a line of work she's been in for 25 years, she has succeeded in educating her daughters. They no longer depend on her, and they're good, hardworking people with solid principles, just like their mother. She has also been gradually improving her home and providing it with all the appropriate conditions, with help from these loans. She does this in order to achieve her goal of leaving a good heritage for her children, so that they have a decent home to live in. She's requesting a loan in order to finish building the kitchen, so that she has the appropriate conditions to make food for her family. With the loan she'll purchase bricks, cement, iron and zinc. She feels very thankful and glad that she has gotten the support of Kiva and Ceprodel which provided her with these loans. They help her achieve dreams and goals that couldn't have been realized with the low wages that are earned in her country.
