Susana Del Socorro
Susana is 41 years old and has four children. Her eldest daughter is grown up and her other three children are still in her care. Her eldest works as a teacher, two are studying at university and her youngest son, who is 14, is in high school. Susana has been working as a high school teacher for 23 years. We should mention that, with previous loans from AFODENIC, Susana has improved her home and her living conditions. She is grateful to Kiva for her last loan because she was able to use it to do some work on her bathroom and further improve her home.

Susana is now requesting a new loan so that she can continue improving her home and build a room for her eldest son to provide him with more comfort and better privacy. Susana's greatest dream is for her children to enjoy good health and stable jobs, for them to enjoy a nice, comfortable home and, above all, for all to be well with God.

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.
