A loan of $400 helped to buy replacement motorcycle parts.

Noel Hernesto's story

Noel Ernesto is a young 29-year-old man, and is the father of a child who is in primary school. For more than 5 years, he has been working as a primary school teacher in a community in the El Sauce municipality. When he started his family, being a responsible young man he decided to take on that job to try and provide his small child with a dignified home.

With his effort and the sweat of his forehead, Noel was able to buy a motorcycle that is "the machete of his work", as they say in Nicaragua. He is thankful for the support of Kiva and CEPRODEL because over the course of three years they have given him four loans, which have supported the development of his humble family since he used them to improve his housing conditions.

At this time, Noel needs a loan to buy replacement parts for his motorcycle, since it has been in bad condition and he needs the support of other people to overcome this inconvenience which is hurting his work, since the community where he teaches is far from the city and the motorcycle helps him travel quickly to his work. He hopes to continue to receive support.
