Alberta and her husband are a very hard-working couple who are ready to offer their son a better quality of life. The house that they have is very small, so they needed to build an additional room to have more space. They began their project with their own savings, but it was not enough to finish the work. They are requesting a loan to buy construction material and pay for labor to lay the slabs and finish up their project so they can live comfortably.

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.
