Filipe is married and is the father of two children who go to school. He lives in his own home and doesn't support anyone besides his immediate family. He is a teacher and part of the Ministry of Education. He will use this loan to buy construction materials (sand, cement, doors, windows, bricks, etc.) to continue work on his home. In the future, he hopes to continue with his studies and to start a business. To do this, he promises to make his payments on time so he can request more loans in the future from Hluvuku. His challenge is the elevated cost of living and prices of materials in the local market.

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.
