I would like nothing more than to see my house finished, but I have not been able to do it. I'm lacking bars for the windows and doors. I'm requesting a loan of $1,000 to finish the doors and windows before the cold and rainy season comes, since I have three children and I don't want them to get sick.

Translated from Spanish by Marty Greenstein, Kiva Volunteer

Me gustaria mucho ver termi nada ya mi casa pero no he podido, me falta los rejas en las ventans y puestas. Estoy solicitando un prestamo de $ 1,000.00 Dlls para la terminacion de ventanas y puertas antes de que se venga el frio y las lluvias ya que tengo 3 hijos y no quiero que se me enfermen.

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.
