María de Jesús and her husband bought a piece of land where they have been building what will be their house. Upon finishing one of the rooms, they went to live there so that the house would not be alone and materials wouldn’t get stolen. However, due to a lack of capital, they haven’t finished stuccoing inside or outside. So, she is requesting a loan to buy cement and sand and to pay labor.
La señora María De Jesús y su esposo compraron un terreno al cual le han estado construyendo lo que será su vivienda. Desde que terminaron uno de los cuartos se fueron a vivir para que no se quedara solo y no le robaran los materiales. Pero por falta de capital no le han terminado de enjarrar por dentro y fuera por tal motivo pide un préstamo para comprar cemento, arena y pagar mano de obra.
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.
