Jimmy lives in a peri-urban area called Perimetral. He has been working as an informal taxi driver so that he can have his own income and not have to be dependent. He works from 6.00am to 8.00pm every day, making journeys for between $1.00 and $15.00. This has enabled him to support himself.
As he lives in a place that is restructuring, he would like to use his loan to buy building materials such as cement, blocks and paint to improve his home since his house is made from brick. In the future, he would like to buy another car and have a family.

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.
