View original language description ↓
With a lot of effort and hard work, I have been able to get a house. Thanks to God, my family has a solid roof of its head. The problem is that the house only has two rooms, and there are five people in my family, which is why I'm building another room at the front of the house. But I lack the funds to finish the job. I'm requesting a loan of $1,000 to do it.

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.
