Minerva Alicia
Minerva works as a housekeeper. She has been divorced for many years, and has the support of her children who no longer live at home. Minerva wants to improve her home since her current roof is made of corrugated metal and wood. Every time it rains, the water seeps through and causes damage to the good material that she has purchased.

Therefore, Minerva wants to use a concrete slab since her roof is in terrible condition. It will give Minerva peace of mind because the problem is not only the roof in bad condition, but it is also dangerous. Therefore, repairing the roof will make her happy and improve her quality of life.

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.
