Marisa Jesus
The member belongs to Señor Pasión Communal Bank, located in the district of Urubamba, in the province of Urubamba and department of Cusco.

The member is Marisa. She is 42 years old and married with three children. She is a teacher in the beginning level in a kindergarten in the district of Yucay. She has been working in this place for years. She likes it a lot because she has to be with children, although sometimes she loses patience but in the end she treats them all with a lot of affection. This is the only work she does for the moment, and she wants to be able to carry on because this is the only means she has to get her family ahead. Through her work and her savings with her husband she managed to build her little house, but she still has more to finish.

She is requesting the loan to finish building the second floor of her house, because her salary as a teacher does not allow her to build.

She is happy about the loan and promises to make her payments on time.

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.
