María Magdalena
Maria is 23 years old and has a son. She learned to do farm labor from her father, but currently sells perfumes via catalog. A friend taught her. She learned this trade so that she could help her husband with the household expenses. The products are delivered in town and she has to walk a few minutes to pick them up.

She will use the money from the loan she is requesting through Fundación Campo to buy two doors for her home which she managed to build with great effort; but it still needs doors and windows. In this way she and her husband can be more confident because the home will be more secure and they will not have to worry about someone getting in because there are no doors. She wants her son to study so that she can be successful on her own.

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.
