With great enthusiasm, Ericka works as an operator at a gas station. She works about 10 hours each day. It is rather tiring work, since she usually has to be on her feet almost all day to serve the customers. She believes that her work is going well for her, because the customers she serves always come back happily, since she is very friendly and for this reason there are no complaints about her.
Ericka is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to the help they have provided to her, she will be able to buy furniture for her home, since currently at her house people sit only on bricks covered with fabric, and they eat at an improvised table made of plywood. In this way she will be able to improve her quality of life, and thus keep working each day to make her greatest dream a reality: "to have her own house," since she currently lives in a rented house.

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.
