Yelba Marbellys's story

Yela Marbellys is a single mother and has three children under the age of 18. She has worked as a teacher at Ceta INATEC Nueva Guinea for 5 years. She is requesting her 7th loan from Kiva partner AFODENIC so she can improve her home by repairing the floor and repairing the roof a bit, which is in bad condition. She will buy construction materials with this loan. She is a woman with a great spirit to overcome, as she has been a professional since she was very young, and has developed herself in the labor market. She is a very responsible and honest person. Yelba has improved her home little by little with the loans that she has received through AFODENIC. She dreams of having a stable job, good health, and a dignified home in her community so she can give her nuclear family comfort. She sacrifices to give these things to her children.
