A loan of $900 helped to buy construction materials.


Suyapa Ivonne's story

Suyapa Ivonne, age 29, is married and has two minor children. She lives in Chinandega, which is located in the western part of the country. Suyapa works as a radio announcer and developer in this municipality.

The objective of this loan is to change the roof of her house, living room, and room. This is because winter is around the corner, and she does not wish to get wet. This way she will give her little twins a decent roof to live under. She has wanted to make these improvements for over a year. However, she has not done so for lack of available money.

She is requesting the loan to buy construction materials like zinc roofing, beams, pipes, iron, and nails, among others. Suyapa is very grateful for the help that the Kiva lenders give to people with few financial resources.
