Juana is one of Esperanza Internacional's entrepreneurs. She came to Esperanza Internacional almost five years ago for a loan to expand her business. She joined the group Vecinas Unidas (United Neighbors) in one of the rural villages in Samana, where she has received nine loans to invest in her business. Esperanza Internacional is running a program where most of their clients pay back their loans, fulfill the commitment to expand their businesses, and show fidelity to their groups. They can request loans to improve their houses while running their businesses and attending group meetings.
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.
