Julia Emperatriz's story

Santa Rosa del Piñon is a beautiful town where people engage in various commercial activities. Here lives Julia Emperatriz, a young woman of 33, who was born in this lovely town.

With what she earns, she has great difficulty supporting her household. She works as a nurse, is married and has two children in her care. Her husband is employed, and helps to support the household.

Her aim is to improve her home. She considers that her house is in need of repair, and that is why she approached Ceprodel to apply for a small loan. She will use it to buy cement, sand, and pay for labor. With this, she will be able to improve her home and provide her family with greater safety.

She reckons that by the end of the year, her home will be better. But by then, she needs Ceprodel and Kiva to offer her this kind of loan. At the moment, she has only her good health, her ability to work, and her integrity.

She says, "I give thanks to God for being the Illuminator of each of us, and of the people who work with Kiva, who think about the future of low-income people. May he continue enlightening them and giving them the strength, so that they can continue offering financial assistance."
