Celia V. is a member of the Barrio Sucre communal bank. She is someone who struggles daily to have a better future. She is both a housewife and a small farm animal merchant. She raises guinea pigs and chickens that she sells in her own community or even as far as the city of Cuenca. She has done this for several years since it was her parents who initiated her in this kind of work.
She is now in her 4th loan cycle with her communal bank. It was thanks to her niece’s invitation that she became a member of this beautiful group of women. She tells us that the loans have been of great use to her in the construction of her new house.
Celia is 63 years old and lives in a common law union with her partner; they have three adult children who have their own families. Her husband is a bricklayer and, thanks to their marital cooperation, they can now enjoy their own home.
They are now building another house that will be for their children. This is the purpose of the loan they are requesting from the Institution. She will invest in the purchase of: concrete blocks, sand, cement, Eternit (a brand of fiber/concrete roofing tiles and siding), to finish the new house and provide tranquility for their children.

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.
