Helyn Mayela's story

The young Heylin Mayela is a teacher that lives in the city of Condega, a small town located about 35 km north of the head department Estelí. This young woman is happily married and has two children in their primary education, which creates school expenses for her and her husband. They have lived in their own house for more than 5 years.

This young woman works daily as a teacher from Monday to Friday in the morning in a community center in the city of Condega where she travels every day to give her classes and in the afternoon she returns home to plan her next class. In this way, she works to have income to sustain the family expenses.

This young teacher presented herself at the offices of Ceprodel for the first time to request a loan to be able to build toilet facilities in her home that has been built by their own efforts. She is requesting this loan because her monthly family income is not sufficient to be able to on her own assume the expenses for the construction of said services. For this reason she asks to be approved for this loan to be able to improve her home. She give thanks in advance for this loan because she wants to improve the condition of her house and therefore give herself and her children a better life.
