In order to buy all the materials he needs for his job, José travels to the closest city, located eight kilometers away. He walks three kilometers up a hill to the bus stop and must wait for several hours for the bus to come, since transport is infrequent. He has to carry all the materials on his back all the way home.
José is requesting a loan to Fundación Campo to buy 4,000 roof tiles and to pay for the labor cost needed to finish building his house. This way, he will be able to finish his house before the raining season comes, and to give his children their own, cozy space where to live. They are now living with José’s sister.
Para comprar los materiales que necesita para su trabajo, debe de viajar a la ciudad más cercana que esta a ocho kilómetros. Él camina tres kilómetros a pie por un cerro hasta llegar a la parada de autobuses y ah debe esperar unas cuantas horas para que pase el autobús, debido a que el transporte es bastante escaso y para trasladar los materiales los hace cargándolos en su espalda hasta llegar a su casa.
El prestamos que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar 4,000 tejas, pago de mano de obra para terminar de construir su casa. Así, podrá terminar de construir su casa antes de que empiece el invierno y que sea un lugar acogedor para sus hijos y tendrán un lugar propio donde vivir, ya que actualmente vive junto a su hermana.

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.
