A loan of $800 helped to buy medicine and pay doctor bills.

Andrea's story

Andrea is originally from the town of El Sauce, where she has lived all her life. She’s a single mother with six children, of whom only one still depends on her. She started to work in the agricultural teaching center when she was very young, where she is currently in charge of preparing food for the students and teachers.

Andrea is 56 years old and there are times when she gets tired of doing this work because it’s tough for her age. This has caused her to have some health problems and so she is asking CEPRODEL for a Kiva loan to buy medicine, get an ultrasound exam, and pay doctor bills, so she can improve her health and be able to work, since this is the way she earns her daily bread.

She is asking the lenders to support her request; she will be eternally grateful.
