José Miguel's story

José Miguel, 30, lives in the town of Santa Rosa del Peñón, a beautiful and charming city in the department of León with many commercial activities and tourist spots. José Miguel makes a living teaching elementary school.

He needs a loan from Kiva and CEPRODEL to buy cement and sand, and to pay for labor. With this he'll achieve one of his main dreams, to repair his house.

With what little he earns he wants to improve his home and not continue facing those problems that have created so much damage for his family. He can only achieve this, though, with a loan financed by Kiva and CEPRODEL.

He hopes to get this type of financing. If not, he and his family will continue living with hardships. "First of all I thank God for having introduced me to CEPRODEL and Kiva so they can lend a friendly hand, which I need so much, and for being able to live in a better house."
