Soraida Del Socorro
Soraida always works arduously night and day next to her husband attending to their business. Of their four children only one is dependent on them. They still manage their local shop and the sale of firewood, income that has helped them raise all their children.

She is requesting a 15th loan for the construction of the front wall of her house. With this loan she will be able to buy cement, sand, blocks, iron, and gravel and hire labourers so she can provide better security to her home and family. Little by little she will improve the conditions of life.

As you can see in the picture Soraida has yet to finish building her house but with the support of Afodenic and Kiva she will finish the infrastructure in the future.

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.
