A loan of $825 helped to fix her patio roof.

Lucía Guillermina's story

Lucía Guillermina is 51 years old and a teacher who has been in the field for more than 30 years. She is very admired for having taught thousands of Saucan (from the City of Sauce) students to read and write and who have become great professionals and helped develop Nicaragua.

She is the mother of three school-aged children to whom she has provided a dignified life full of love and wellbeing with her humble teacher’s salary. With the help of loans she was able to build a home of her own and she has been improving it little by little over the years.

She is grateful to Kiva and Ceprodel because they have supported and provided a little grain of sand to this family in need.

She is asking for a loan in order to improve her patio cover, which is in bad shape and she needs to provide better security for her family.

She will use the money to buy bricks, cement, sand, iron bars, and pay for labor. She trusts in God that her request will be approved and she will be able to make this investment.
