Santa
Santa is the mother of two children. She lives together with their father and long term partner. Since they are living in deteriorated housing, which she is renting, she is requesting a loan, which she will use to improve her house situation by purchasing building materials to finish building her house.

Santa is one of Esperanza Internacional's entrepreneurs. She came to Esperanza Internacional almost 3 years ago for a loan to expand her business. She lives in a slum area in the north of Santo Domingo. Esperanza Internacional is running a program where most of their clients pay back their loans, fulfill the commitment to expand their businesses, and show reliability in their groups. They can request loans to improve their house structure, while running their business loans and attending groups meetings.

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.
