Dalila De Fátima's story

Dalila de Fátima, 31, is a young woman, married and has a small son. She studied Civil Engineering; she always dreamed of designing and building houses. She currently works as an engineer for an institution. She is in charge of different projects, mainly focused on people with few economic resources in the poor communities surrounding El Sauce.

Dalila has been working with CEPRODEL for many years and has been granted numerous loans that have improved her quality of life. She has better living conditions now and she feels grateful for the support that Kiva lenders have given her.

Some months ago, she had her first child. With the intention to offer him better living conditions, she came to CEPRODEL to request a loan to buy paint and pay for labor. She trusts that God will help her to receive this loan in order to make this investment.
