Cora Del Socorro
Cora del Socorro Sequeiro is a 49 year old single mother. She has a 17 year old son who goes to school. She has worked as a janitor in the American School for 24 years. She lives in the Memorial Sandino neighborhood in the capital of Managua.

One of her wishes is to be able to help her son become an honorable man who is prepared for this world. She has put forth much effort and has been able to get ahead. She has her own house, which is very hard for many Nicaraguans to do because everything is expensive. Loans are the only way we can begin to reach our goals.

This is her eleventh loan with Afodinic. She will buy zinc sheets, beams, and other things to be able to put a roof on the living room and a part of the rooms. She hopes to continue with her work in order to have better benefits.

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.
