Guillermo has his own truck, bought with savings from his work. He uses it for hauling, which allows him to have another source of income to help pay for basic household expenses, food, medicine and support for his children.
Guillermo has been improving his home with financing from Afodenic. Since materials are costly, with this new loan he will buy: 20 zinc sheets, 10 metal bars, cement and sand to finish the roof and close off the walls.

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.
