Lesbia De Los Angeles
Lesbia continues to administer her restaurant that has taken years to build up sales. Her sons continue growing and studying. Her husband continues working as an electrician and always supports the family.

For both of them the goal has been the building of their house, and they have succeeded with their own savings and with the loans that Afodenic has given previously, in order to put in windows and roofing of good quality.

Now they can not afford to buy doors, windows and fences which is why they are asking for this loan, in order to have better living arrangements and more security in their home.

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.
