Ismayil has a car and works as a taxi driver. He has been a driver for 19 years. He serves local people and earns income.
With a previous loan he received from VFAC, Ismayil repaired his car, as it was damaged and had long distance service problems.
Ismayil now needs to improve his home, so he is applying for a loan from Kiva and VFAC to buy cement, bricks and sand. With this he will be able to cover the necessities of improving the house and giving his family a healthier 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.
