A loan of $825 helped to buy a motorcycle.

Arlen María's story

El Sauce is a beautiful town that is located 86 kilometers from the department of Leon. Here there are enterprising people who have a spirit of cooperation, such as Arlen Maria.

Arlen Maria, 34, strives to provide for herself and her family, working as an elementary school teacher. She and her husband have a dependent daughter. They work in a district that is 23 kilometers from the city of El Sauce. Arlen does not have transportation to her job; she gets there by hitchhiking. Since she really needs to work, she is requesting a loan from Ceprodel and Kiva to buy a motorcycle. It would be a great benefit to Arlen if she could continue to work using her own means of transportation; this would improve her living conditions.

Arlen Maria knows that Kiva and Ceprodel look out for the interests of enterprising people who are struggling to improve their lives.
