Donald José's story

Santa Rosa del Peñon is a little town that is fighting for business. In past times, the majority of its citizens survived by emigrating to other countries. Now they depend on their own town, thanks to the fact that they have discovered that there exist different kinds of mines to exploit, such as gold and gypsum mines, which are those that now are functioning to develop small business people.

It is here that the young Donald José lives, striving for his livelihood by offering instruction to primary students, but his dream is to be able to improve his house. According to him, he can manage to do this through a loan from CEPRODEL and Kiva.

Now he has learned that CEPRODEL and Kiva support this type of person, and for that reason he is applying for a loan to purchase cement and sand and pay for labor. This will be of great importance to take advantage of this to improve the walls of his house a little because they are deteriorated, and he will give them a little plastering, since it is beyond his means to rebuild them.

He appreciates CEPRODEL and Kiva because they continue to give him a friendly hand to continue forward in his family life.
