It was chosen for a program of creating alliances to strengthen local skills for Nicaragua’s recovery. Edwin, 35, lives here. He’s married and is a legal assessor for the municipal government. His nuclear family consists of his wife and son.

He’s currently applying for the water and sewage project by means of financing to improve the bathroom in his house because it does not have the necessary conditions; he needs to buy an economic toilet, wash basin, pipes with potable water connections and Econosan 1,300-liter tank plus to pay labor costs because they know how important it is to use an improved sewage system.

By means of this alliance, his family can access this project that’s benefiting several municipalities in the country which will lead to improved standard of living and help to lessen environmental deterioration. These programs help the poorest families and this is why these projects need to be aimed at the most vulnerable sectors of the country.

This loan is administered by Centro de Promocion del Desarrollo Local (CEPRODEL), one of Kiva’s larger partners in Central America. Founded in 1991 and based in Managua, Nicaragua, CEPRODEL specializes in the development and funding of housing cooperatives for traditionally marginalized communities, the provision of microfinance services to small businesses, and the promotion of innovative renewable energy projects. In addition, unlike many microfinance institutions in the area that have chosen to avoid the rural areas of the country due to the increased financial risk, CEPRODEL provides financial services to numerous clients in the agriculture and livestock industry. Supporting a borrower through CEPRODEL means contributing to the promotion and sustainability of this important work in Nicaragua.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
