Raquel
Raquel and her husband Tomas have four children who attend school; three in elementary school and one in the first year of preschool.

Raquel sells school supplies, clothing and shoes in different parts of the city and has been doing so for six years. Her husband, Tomas, works for the city.

Her neighborhood currently does not have sewage and they need to build a septic tank in order to provide hygiene and security to their family, so they are asking for a loan because they don’t have the money to buy the supplies and pay the contractor.

Raquel will repay the loan out of her earnings. Tomas’ salary is for the family expenses and children’s educational expenses.

She wants to improve her family’s quality of life and prevent her children’s sickness.

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.
