Samuel Muthiora
Samuel lives in Uthiru, Nairobi, where he has put up rental houses. Uthiru area houses a number of low income earners and thus Samuel's tenants live in houses made of iron sheets. He intends to construct better and more secure houses that will provide him with a good income. By renovating his current houses, he will make sure that his tenants are satisfied and comfortable.

Samuel is a 38-year-old single gentleman. He was introduced to KADET by his mother, who is a client but in a different group. He has never borrowed from any other financial institution; however, this will be his third loan from KADET.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
