Zenayda De Jesús's story

Zenayda de Jesús, 64, is from the municipality of El Sauce. She’s the mother of 8 children two of which are still in her care. She’s had a tough life to live having to raise so many children even more so when living in the countryside where life is even more difficult and there is more poverty due to unstable income.

When she moved to the urban zone, she spent many years renting her home in order to work and earn steady income to provide daily bread and help her children attend school. With help from loans Kiva and Ceprodel have provided she managed to buy a small lot to start building her own house using also her salary as a caretaker at a local school where she’s been working for the last 13 years.

She currently wants to improve the floor in her small house because it’s currently dirt and this is why she’s asking for the loan to buy paving stones, cement and to pay labor costs in order to improve her living conditions. She trusts in God that her case will touch the hearts of lenders so her loan will be granted and she can carry out this investment.
