Juan is a single, 34-year-old man. He lives in the city of Ica, and is a kind, hard-working, and enthusiastic individual who has a great desire to improve. Unfortunately, due to lack of economic resources, he was not able to go to school for mechanical engineering as he had hoped, but he would have really liked to have gone. In his free time, he likes to continue working and sometimes, he eats the delicious ceviche, which is his favorite dish.

With much determination, Juan works by providing transportation services. He has a small vehicle that he uses to provide taxi services everyday. He begins very early in the morning, traveling to various streets in the city, looking for passengers. Juan works approximately 10 hours a day and he believes his work is going well because he is familiar with his routes and he knows where to find more customers.

Juan is very grateful for Kiva loans, because thanks to this help, he will be able to build an enclosure on his land, which he has acquired for a home. Also, he will be able to cover the design and planning costs for his home. This way, Juan hopes to start building his home. He will continue working and making an effort to reach his dream of finishing the construction of his own home.

Today, it also offers credit for consumers, microenterprises and housing improvements, and has expanded its financial services to promote micro-savings and provide micro-insurance. This institution has been instrumental in helping borrowers recover from the devastating earthquake in the Ica region in 2007, and works with Peru’s National Bank to reach some of the poorest and most remote microfinance clients in the country.

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.
