Darío's story

Darío is a 54 year-old man who has dedicated almost all of his life to teaching children of all ages to read and write. He has a lot of experience teaching at the elementary school level, a profession that he chose because of his passion for teaching. This work gives him a lot of satisfaction, so much that now he is the principal of a school in a district that is located 10 kilometers from the town of El Sauce.

Darío is an enterprising person who is a native of a poor rural settlement. Over time, he struggled to be able to get his teaching job, overcoming obstacles such as seasonal winter flooding of the Los Panales No. 1 river, which damaged the roads he used for access.

Thanks to his salary, and the support provided by Kiva through CEPRODEL, he has improved the condition of his home. He has expanded it, and now his small children and wife can enjoy having more space, which makes him feel very pleased and grateful.

He is requesting a loan to buy bricks, cement, sand, corrugated metal roofing material and beams so that he can finish construction of a room, because his goal is to have a decent home in spite of being a humble employee and he is thinking about having a better future for his children.
