In his spare time, he likes to listen to music and on some occasions he cooks a delicious dish of rice with chicken to share with his family.

Thanks to the support of his brother, and with a lot of determination and enthusiasm, Pedro works providing transportation services. He relies on a rickshaw which he uses to work.

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.

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.
