This loan will be Virginia's first with the institution. She will use it for the construction of a load-bearing wall in her home.
Virginia faces challenges in her business, such as the bad moods of some drivers who treat her poorly, but this doesn't stop her from getting ahead. In spite of the difficulties, she doesn't have any competition and for that reason has a large customer base. She will use these advantages to continue improving her home; already with the construction of this load-bearing wall she feels much better. Virginia is very happy and appreciative to the institution for the help offered.

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.
