A loan of $525 helped to buy medication and pay for exams and ultrasounds.

María Isabel's story

María Isabel, 34, was born in El Sauce and is the mother of two children. She has been working as a janitor at a local school for 10 years. Though her job pays little, she does it conscientiously. She starts cleaning the classrooms at 5 a.m. so that the rooms are clean a 7 a.m., when the students arrive. The work is tiring, but she thanks God for a decent job that allows her to provide for her children every day.

She has applied for a loan to buy medication and to pay for exams and ultrasounds for her youngest son, who has been sick recently. Her salary doesn't cover these emergency expenses. She hopes and trust in God that the Kiva lenders will provide this funding though Ceprodel, as she is one of many low-income Nicaraguans who need their help.
