A loan of $900 helped to build a bathroom.

Flor De Maria's story

Flor de María lives in the town of Condega which is 35 km north of the city of Estelí. She is a single mother and has a daughter who lives with her in her own house. She has been living at the same address for some 30 years and is well-known. She has been a teacher for 19 years and teaches secondary pupils at the national school of Condega. She works Monday to Friday from 7am to 12 noon and in the afternoons she plans her classes for the next day.

Flor de María visited the Ceprodel offices to ask for a loan to build a bathroom in her home, through the water and drainage project which Ceprodel is carrying out jointly with the town hall. This project aims to improve the public health of the locals since the underground water supply and sanitation facilities will improve the standard of living.

Flor de María hopes the loan will be approved, giving her the option of this project which will improve her family's health and increase the value of her house. Her income is not sufficient to cover the cost of this project herself in one payment. She is keeping positive and hopes she will become another beneficiary of this project.
