A loan of $625 helped to pay for her father's surgery.

Luz Marina's story

Luz Marina is originally from the town of El Sauce located west of León. It is a town with cool temperatures because it is surrounded by tree-lined mountains where they produce honey and milk.

She feels proud to be a Sauceña (a person from El Sauce) from birth and in her heart. She is a hard worker and determined like all Sauceños.

She is a virtuous woman that has had a hard life. As a single mother, she has raised two kids without the help of their father and has been mother and father at the same time.

Carrying out the duties as an elementary school teacher, she brings bread home every day and she walks 14 km daily to arrive to the region where she delivers classes. With love she always teaches the children and more are from those regions where they are prodominately poor.

This 41 year old woman is worthy of admiration because in spite of not having an easy life, she tries to help others and to be responsible for the health and diet of her parents. For this reason she is asking the Kiva lenders to finance a loan through Ceprodel in order to pay for the surgery of her father who is actually in bad health.
