Rosa Amelia's story

Rosa Amelia lives in El Sauce located in León Department. She’s 43-years-old, single and has three children; all attend school and only one of them currently works.

Thanks to the caretaker job she’s had for the last 6 years she’s managed to improve her house’s conditions. Her children are preparing themselves professionally and she’s instilled good principles in them and today they are upstanding citizens who are tenacious just like their mother; she raised them alone without help from their father.

She’s requesting the loan to buy bricks, cement and to pay labor costs to replace another wall in said house. Thanks to these loans she’s been improving her house because all the walls used to be mud which represented a great danger for her family and because of this she’s grateful to Kiva and Ceprodel because they’ve made it possible for her to gradually change her living conditions which she never would have been able to accomplish with her low salary.
