She is applying for a loan to Fundación Campo to build a small house of bricks and sheets of metal in the top of the lagoon. When it rains a lot, the water level of the lagoon floods the houses at the bottom of it, and therefore it's necessary to evacuate people and their belongings. With the investment they want to avoid diseases due to the excess of humidity, or even worse, the loss of their lives in a flood situation at night when they are asleep.
Celia wants to build a more secure and permanent house. She also wants to expand her business in order to have enough income, jointly with her life partner, to cover the basic needs of her home. They want to give the opportunity to study to his two year old once he has the age.
Ella solicita un préstamo a Fundación Campo, para construir una casa pequeña de ladrillo y lámina en la parte alta de la laguna, debido a que cuando llueve mucho el nivel del agua de la laguna inunda las casas de la parte baja, por lo que se hace necesario la evacuación de las personas y sus pertenencias. Con la inversión quieren evitar la presencia de enfermedades por el exceso de humedad o en el peor de los casos perder la vida en una situación de inundación por la noche y que estén dormidos.
Celia desea construir su casa de forma más segura y permanente, hacer que su negocio crezca para tener las condiciones económicas para cubrir junto con su compañero de vida las necesidades básicas de su hogar y brindarle la oportunidad de estudiar a su hijo de dos años cuando tenga la edad.

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.
