Santa Teresa De Jesus
Sra. Santa Teresa is 40 years old. She is a wife, a mother, and a grandmother. Santa Teresa and her husband have been able to help one another get ahead. The two of them earn money to provide for their needs and to fund any venture they wish to undertake. The welfare of her children and grandchildren has always been important to her. For this reason, she helps her daughter sell used clothing so that they can pay for the school expenses of her grandchildren.

Santa Teresa is a woman who loves her family and always wants to provide security for all of her grandchildren. For this reason, she needs assistance from Kiva so that she can replace the electrical cables in her home. They have been severely damaged and she would like to avoid an accident from happening whenever her children or grandchildren visit.

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.
