Santa Lucia
Santa Lucia has had Kiva loans that she has used to improve her home and she has repaid them punctually.

Currently she is requesting this loan because she lacks a water sanitation system in her home and at the moment she does not have the necessary funds to make the improvement.

Santa Lucia has worked for more than 10 years selling household goods and electrical appliances in different parts of the city of Nuevo Laredo. With the income she earns from her business she plans to repay the loan and she will use the money her husband sends for the household expenses and her children's school expenses.

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.
