Nelson Jose's story

Education is in Nelson’s blood. At university he chose courses that led to a professional career in that field. Now he is a secondary school teacher in a high school in the Department of León; he’s been a teacher for 29 years.

Nelson is single and has no children. As he needs to make some renovations to his house, he made the decision to approach CEPRODEL to ask for a loan. He plans to use the money to buy galvanised steel, cement, gravel, sand, wire, nails, floorboards, steel studs, zinc roofing, and hire labourers in order to make improvements to the foundation and roof of his house as they are in bad condition. These changes will result in better living conditions and an improved standard of living.
