A loan of $750 helped to buy a refrigerator.

Luz Adilia's story

El Sauce is a small town with local entrepreneurs whose desire it is to get ahead and enjoy better living conditions. Luz Adilia, 61, works as a cook in the Minsa hospital. She has no children in her care and with the small salary she earns she can barely cover household expenses. Her husband works as a bricklayer and helps in home renovation.

She wants to enjoy better living conditions at home and her main desire is to have her own refrigerator so at after arriving home after a long day's work she can enjoy a cold soft drink or ice cream.

Luz Adilia likes her job but she does not earn enough to renovate her house, so she has decided to request a Kiva loan through Ceprodel to buy a refrigerator to help improve her family's conditions.

She believes it is very important to be more careful with food and live a healthy lifestyle so she can continue to work.
