Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

Teodoro's story

Teodoro lives in the beautiful city of Estelí, known as the Diamond of Segovia, in the north of Nicaragua. He is married and has two school-aged children. Teodoro has worked as a plumber for a water and sewer company for nine years. He is an upstanding man and role model for his family.

This is Teodoro's third loan with CEPRODEL [Centro de Promocion del Desarrollo, or Center for the Advancement of Local Development] Local and he says that the previous two loans have helped his family greatly as they financed home improvements. Teodoro will use these loan funds to purchase construction materials such as zinc and beams to repair the roof of his home. He is grateful to Kiva for the support it has provided, which allows him to make home improvements and provide his family better living conditions.
