Damaris Elieta's story

Damaris Elieta lives in the small, but enchanting, town of Santa Rosa del Peñón, where people pursue different work such as business and raising livestock. Damaris Elieta is the single mother of a son, and she is an elementary school teacher. She supports her child and says she needs to teach. She is healthy and able to work.

She built her small house with loans financed by Kiva and Ceprodel. She works hard for her low salary, which just covers her family´s food and her son´s education. She is now applying for small loan with Ceprodel and Kiva to be repaid over 12 months. She will use the loan to buy cement, sand, and bricks to repair her house so that she and her family can live in better conditions.
