Due to insufficient capital for building a house, San is seeking a loan from Hattha Kaksekar Limited (HKL), a long-standing Kiva partner, to buy needed materials for housing construction. Just for a suitable shelter, it is going to cost USD 1,500. This loan will help prevent her family from paying a higher rent for a room and will improve their standard of living.

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.
