Emilio Bienvenido
Emilio Bienvenido is 47 years old, married with two children and comes from the department of Chinandega, located in the western part of Nicaragua. In his free time he likes to enjoy the company of his wife and children. Unfortunately, due to a lack of economic resources, he could not pursue a university education as he was forced to work from an early age by the extreme poverty in which his family lived.

At present, his dreams and goals are to be able to educate his children to be professionals and provide them a better future. Thanks to his entrepreneurial spirit and his desire to get ahead he has been building their house little by little with the income that he has from his work as an electrician in a cooking oil manufacturing company doing maintenance. Emilio, in this moment, is requesting financing to build a room and also to put a floor in another room that he built through his own efforts and so buy construction materials such as: corrugated metal roofing, cement, sand, lime, rebar, wire, wood and nails, among other things.

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.
