Rocio Elizabeth
Roció Elizabeth is 47, divorced, and has four children. She has been working for a year in a maquiladora (assembly plant), as a line operator making automobile harnesses.

She does this with the aim of providing her children with a better quality of life. In addition, one of her daughters, who is the eldest, contributes money to help her with the household expenses.

For Rocío, it is very important to have a house in good condition, because it is the legacy she can give her children. She lives in subsidized housing, and improvements have not been done for several years; so on some of the walls you can now see moisture stains. For this reason, she wants to buy paint and paintbrushes, so that she can paint it and have it look good.

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.
