Iris has a business selling bananas at a market in Managua. The bananas she sells are from her farm that is managed by one of her children. The loan she is requesting will be used to build a porch for her house in order to provide more comfortable conditions for her family. As a result, this construction project will expand her house, thus allowing her grandchildren to play freely.
Iris needs to buy cement, blocks, sand, iron, and gravel. She will also pay for labor so that the work can continue.

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.
