Harold Enrique
Harold is 36 years old, married, and works as a construction contractor. His wife is a housewife, and he has 4 children, ages 6 months, 4, 11, and 12. Two of them go to school.

Harold has been a good worker who is devoted to his family. Two years ago he went to Costa Rica to build a house as they lived with his mother and father-in-law. These were very difficult days for him, but he is happy because he managed to almost complete the construction of his house.

Now, making the improvements will be done in installments through the loan from Afodenic. He gets less income in Nicaragua, and he needs to cover all of the expenses. He will use the loan to buy construction materials to plaster the walls, put down tile, and to have better hygiene in his 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.
