La señora Marta P. es muy esforzada y se dedica desde hace 12 años al negocio de venta de frutas y verduras comercializadas en el mercado La Estación de la ciudad de León. Es de importancia destacar que ella es madre de dos hijos y debido a que es soltera tiene el deber de mantenerlos ya que ella hace el papel de padre y madre a la vez.

Hoy en día la razón por la cual ha acudido a Ceprodel es para obtener un crédito el cual le permita la compra de los perecederos como lo son las frutas y verduras para continuar comercializándolas en el mercado La Estación de la ciudad de León.

Additional Information


This loan is administered by Centro de Promocion del Desarrollo Local (CEPRODEL), one of Kiva’s larger partners in Central America.

Supporting a borrower through CEPRODEL means contributing to the promotion and sustainability of this important work in Nicaragua.
