Amon lives in rural western Uganda and is a farmer. He grows coffee, Irish potatoes and sugarcane. He does all this to earn income to sustain his large family and pay school fees.

He wants the money to buy materials to complete his house, which is inhabitable at the moment. With the loan, his family will have better shelter and enough space to house all his six children, who have had to share beds at the moment.

He is confident he will be a rich man with time. Weather changes and limited capital are his major setbacks.

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.
