Victoria is 51 years old, she is married and she lives in a house she and her husband have succeeded in buying thanks to their efforts, little by little also making repairs. She is a very resourceful person who doesn’t like depending on her husband as she thinks that if both of them have a job instead of only one of them, they will be able to enjoy a better standard of living. Her husband works in maquiladora (foreign-owned assembly plants) of their community, while she sells cakes, hamburgers, fried cheese, tacos and soft drinks. She earns a living this way, thus contributing in paying for the household expenses. Her house needs to be repaired and she is requesting a loan to buy plaster and paint. She is grateful for the support she will receive to complete her project.

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.
