A loan of $425 helped to buy bricks, a toilet and a sink.

Antonia Del Socorro's story

Antonia del Socorro is 41 years old and a single mother of two school age children. She is originally from the village of la Quimera which is west of león. She is employed as a primary school teacher and she has 20 years of experience. This has allowed her to bring home earnings each day to her family. She is a strong woman and entrepreneurial and she has been the mother and father for her children because she has given them love and ensured their well being without the help of their father.

As a responsible mother, she travels 90km each day in order to arrive at the school where she teaches classes to children with few resources, yet always with the goal of passing on everything she can to her students.

With the intent to improve the conditions of her home, she is seeking financing from Kiva, through Ceprodel, to buy bricks, a toilet and a sink because she currently relies on a latrine in poor condition that make it very dangerous for her family. She hopes that these investments will help her with her need to improve the aforementioned conditions.
