Mariana Del Carmen's story

The beautiful, enchanting city of Acuapa is known for its agriculture, commerce and livestock-farming, as well as its Nicaraguan cultures. It is in the department of León, where Mariana del Carmen lives. Mariana del Carmen, 48, is married and has two children. Her husband is a farmer and barely able to cover daily household expenses. She works as a teacher and helps cover the children's education costs. Mariana del Carmen is in need of a loan from Kiva and Ceprodel which she will pay back over a 12-month period. She plans to buy cement, sand, and bricks to improve the roof of her house. She claims the only way she can do this is with financing from Ceprodel and Kiva. She is in good health, loves her work and adores her children, who she wants to grow up in better conditions. She can only do this through a loan from Kiva and Ceprodel. "I thank God for having given me good health and for having sent me to Ceprodel and Kiva; hopefully they continue to give me a helping hand so I can carry out my activities."
