A loan of $600 helped purchase cement, sand, and rebar.


José Leonel's story

Achuapa is a beautiful and enchanting town located in the district of Leon, where there live many people who desire to get ahead.

José Leonel is called "el Joven," the Boy. He is 44 years old. He fights hard everyday for both himself and his family. He works in one of the local cities. He lives together with his wife and three children under his care. His wife works as a gradeschool teacher, and with the little that she makes is able to help her husband with the daily expenses of the household.

One of José's dreams is to improve his home. For this reason he is requesting a loan through Kiva and CEPRODEL in order to purchase the cement, sand, and rebar the family needs to be able to improve their home. He is grateful to God that he found Kiva and CEPRODEL and so has the opportunity to apply for his fifth loan. He has been acquiring his home through the use of loans from Kiva and CEPRODEL, and so this one will go toward making improvements.
