Being a single mother is not easy for Reyna, but with great effort she has been able to support her two children. She wants them to study so that they can have better working opportunities in life. Her house is made of blocks and boards, but it lacks plaster on the walls and tiles on the floor because at the moment there is only dirt. Reyna will build the kitchen and make other improvements gradually using the loans from AFODENIC. Her financial condition provides little available income, so she is making improvements for her family’s welfare in phases.

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.
