José Dolores's story

In the municipality of Santa Rosa del Peñón, a beautiful city located in the León region, different economic activities take place. There, José Dolores, a young man, is known as an honorable, responsible, honest and hardworking person.

José Dolores is thirty-one years old; he was born and raised in this municipality and works as a primary-school teacher for the Ministry of Education. He has two children to take care of and his wife does not work, she takes care of the household chores.

With the little money he makes as a teacher, he is not able to build a small annex to his house. His dream is to expand it, since they were fewer when they started, but they are four now. His house is small and needs to be expanded in order to live more comfortably. This is why he is requesting a loan from Ceprodel and Kiva.

He will use this loan to buy cement, sand and bricks and to pay for labor costs. His biggest dream is to build a bedroom that will improve the quality of life of his family. He expects that by next year, his house will be in better conditions, but for this he needs the loan from Ceprodel and Kiva. At the moment, he only has his good health, his capacity to work and his honesty.

"Firstly, I want to thank God for helping me to find Ceprodel and Kiva, as they will continue to give me the help I need."
