Damaso is 54 years old and has been employed in a commercial center for the last 11 years, where he has a bread store. He is married, and lives in publicly subsidized housing which his son acquired. These houses are very small, and they have decided to expand theirs, but as labor is very expensive, they can't stretch to laying the floor slabs with their own savings. They are asking for a loan to be able to complete their project and provide more comfort for their 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.
