Gilma Dinora's story

Gilma is from Los Zarzales, in the municipality of El Jicaral. She has lived there all her life. She studied primary school teaching because she likes teaching children to read and write. They are the future of Nicaragua.

She has been a primary school teacher for 22 years. This job has enabled her to provide for her family and raise her daughters by herself without the help of their father. As a result, she is a determined and enterprising woman who has got on in life thanks to her own efforts.

Through her work she found out about the people known as Kiva investors who finance loans via Ceprodel, in particular to people with scarce resources. This is her first loan request. She wants to improve her house by tiling it. She will buy the tiles and cement and pay for the labour in order to have better conditions in her home.
