Dalia Sonia's story

Dalia Sonia is 51 years old and lives in San José, a small village five kilometres from the El Sauce municipality. Dalia is a mother to one son who is in high school.

Dalia has been making a living as a primary teacher for 30 years. She has spent half of her life working in the same school. This profession has helped Dalia to help her son to prosper. Dalia's son is the person whom she most loves in their life, and her great dream is to see that he is ready so that he can look after himself when she is gone.

Dalia is proud of her young son as he is very responsible and studious. Every day he wakes up early in order to cycle for one hour to El Sauce, as there is no secondary school in San José.

In recent months Dalia has been ill and so has come back to "Ceprodel" for a loan from Kiva investors. This loan will be used to buy medicines and to pay for medical exams and ultrasounds in order to improve her health and be at her best at work. Sonia does not want to fail her son, and wants him to be ready for adulthood with the help of God.
