At the age of 7 Estela started to learn how to weave and make rope. She helped her parents, and earned a living for herself alongside her family. When she turned 27 she started to carry out domestic work, and got married.
Estela has requested this loan from Fundación Campo to buy 800 tiles, as this will help her to make improvements to her house. She will repair the roof on her home, as the rainy season is fairly strong, and this will allow her family to be safer. Her dream is to set up a farm with chickens and laying hens, to continue working with the Foundation, and to always be able to support her family.
El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar 800 tejas, que le ayude al mejoramiento de su casa.

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.
