Ana Bertha's story

Ana Bertha is originally from the municipality of Larreynaga, located 50 km from the province of León, surrounded by flower-covered mountains and many streams. This humble woman was raised in this small town, and had two children that are well-behaved young people who are studying for university degrees.

With great effort she has worked as a teacher, traveling daily to the community of Zarzales and getting up at five o'clock in the morning in order to be at her work center on time. She also has the help of her husband who makes the sacrifice of being far from home to work as a laborer in a country neighboring El Salvador so he can pay for their children's studies.

She first approached Ceprodel when she heard that there were some funders who support the most needy, with the goal of requesting a loan in order to invest it in her home. She wishes to buy cement, sand, bricks, and iron, in order to build a concrete wall to prevent water from entering her house due to the abundant rainfall, because the area where they live floods often. She asks from the bottom of her heart that these investors support her request, in which case she would be eternally grateful.
