Flor works washing clothes by hand, ironing and cleaning for other people. This is very hard work since she must go from house to house doing her work. Flor has an enormous desire to have her own home in which she can lead a stable life together with her family. For this reason, she is requesting a loan from Integral which will enable her to buy a plot of land on which she will build her home and also be able to grow corn to sell. This would be of great benefit to her family since it would provide her children with a secure home.

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.
