María Elsa's story

María Elsa lives in the municipality of Santa Rosa del Peñón, a beautiful city known for lots of different activities, and it is located in the department of León.

María Elsa is known as a responsible, honest and hard-working woman. She is seeking a loan from Kiva and Ceprodel, which she will pay back in 12 months, in order to purchase cement, sand, and bricks so that she can improve her home. Her home has suffered from the strong rain storms that have caused a lot of damage in the region.

She is a single mother of two children that depend on her. She works in a health center and with the little money that she earns she hopes to make home improvements so that she can stop facing challenges that cause harm to her family. This can only happen if Kiva and Ceprodel give her a helping hand.

She currently is in good health and has the capacity to work. Her small home was constructed poorly and has lots of problems, but she wants to make it better.

"Thanks to God I have found Ceprodel and Kiva, because they are providing me with help and providing possibilities for other people to work."
