Alvaro José
Sr. Alvaro is a resident of the town of Ticuantepe. He lives with his children and his wife, who works for a private household as a way of helping with the expenses. The plans for his family include improving their living conditions. His major challenge is not having enough money from his salary to make a one-time purchase of all of the construction materials for his home.

He is grateful to AFODENIC for providing Kiva funds to low-income people because the program allows them to repay in small installments until they are able to fully pay back their loans.

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.
