Darvin Francisco's story

Darvin Francisco lives in the municipality of El Sauce in the region of La Palma. His home is 10 kilometers from town, which is the area where he got married and raised his two children.

Darvin works as a primary school teacher. He must leave home for the entire week in order to do his job because of the distance and the difficulty in travel. Therefore, he must stay in the area where he teaches classes.

Despite the sacrifice he has made to be away from his family, Darvin is very grateful to God for having a decent job that allows him to provide for his daily household needs. During the rainy season, the rivers and roads are full of water. Darvin has gotten sick because he has had to travel through heavy rains and cross over the rivers. For this reason, he needs a loan in order to buy medicines, obtain ultrasounds, and pay for medical exams so that he can improve his health and not miss school. Otherwise, his students will be at a disadvantage since they will fall behind in their studies.

Darvin hopes to have the support of Kiva and CEPRODEL in order to meet this need.
