He is single and works with his younger brother selling wholesale chocolates in a crowded market place in the city of Paz. Juan lives in Paz.
He will use the loan to buy construction supplies to repair two rooms where he currently lives in his mother’s home. Both of the clients make sacrifices, cooperating with one another at work, and are very happy to be given a loan.
Juan, a young man, is a hard worker and eager to triumph.

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.
