Mao has been a construction worker for almost five years. From this job, he can make a decent wage to meet his family's living needs. He is happy because his wife helps generate income by working in a local garment factory. This couple has a small child who will be enrolled in school in the next two years. He dreams of sending his child into higher levels of education to give him a better way of life someday.

Mao would like to take out a loan form Kiva lenders to enable him to tile his roof again with new zinc. This will protect the family during the rainy season. He believes that through his hard work and perseverance, he will be able to provide his family with good living conditions.

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.
