José Bismark's story

Jose Bismark lives in a neighborhood of the city of Managua. He presently works for the state, having fulfilled responsibilities in financial administration for the last 2 ½ years. He is an honest and responsible person with good moral values, is married and has 3 school-age children in his charge. His wife has no stable job and they struggle to provide their children with an education that will prepare them for professions in the future. Jose Bismark came to this CEPRODEL office to solicit a loan for constructing an annex to a room in his house. With the loan, he will purchase construction materials such as concrete blocks, zinc sheeting, cement and sand. With this financing, Jose Bismark will invest in expanding his house in order to offer better comfort and conditions of life for his family. Without the help of Kiva through CEPRODEL, he would not be able to make these improvements.
