Edgar Meliton
Thirty-eight year old Edgar is married to Silvia, with whom he has two young children. The older one is 8 years old and is in primary school, and the younger is only 5 years old and in preschool. They want to give them the best so that they can have an enterprising future.

They are applying for a Kiva loan in order to improve their housing, since it is lacking a wall around the house, and they don't have the necessary money to be able to buy the material and pay someone to build it.

With the salary that Edgar receives as a guard, they plan to repay the loan, and his wife will be responsible for family and school expenses with the income she receives from her job.

They want to improve the quality of life for their family, so that they have a safe place to live, since his children are young and like to go outside to play.

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.
