Angela Maritza is 41 years old. She has been working as a cleaner at the Jacinto Hernández Hospital for 24 years. She has two children: the eldest is 17 and is beginning his university studies and the youngest is 12 and in the first year of his secondary education. Her husband works as a maintenance assistant at the Hospital. They both share the household expenses.

Angela is a responsible, honest, hard-working and very humble woman. She lives in area # 2 of Nueva Guinea where the population is growing. She feels grateful for the support of Kiva since she has been able to build her pantry and bought domestic electrical appliances thanks to her loans.

She is requesting this loan to extend her kitchen since the one she has is very small and she needs more comfort.

Her dream is to have a decent home where her family can live in a safe and pleasant atmosphere.

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.
