She has a shop where she sells breakfast food, lunch food, drinks, snacks, typical local dishes, bread, cookies, and other products. The business is located very close to the house where she lives and her oldest daughter helps her run it.
Since she is very well known and has good references, she is asking INTEGRAL for a loan. She lacks running water at her house, which makes it so she has to go to a public well every morning to bring water to her house. This is very hard, tiring work, considering that there are long lines to get water.
With a huge desire to change this, she is asking for a loan so she can install running water at her house and in this way have a better life.

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.
