He is a security guard for a private company. With this loan he plans to buy construction materials (sand, stone, cement, blocks and others) to continue the expansion of his house.

In future Boavida hopes to complete the expansion of his home and to rehabilitate his hairdressing salon to increase his income. To this end he commits to duly paying off the loan in order to solicit further loans from Hluvuku.

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.
