Juan Leonardo
Juan Leonardo, 59, is originally from Mexico City and has now spent more than 30 years living in Nuevo Laredo. He is married to Maria Magdalena with whom he has two girls, one who is married and the younger is studying Nursing.

They are seeking a Kiva loan to install electrical cables in the home as the electrical cables he currently has are in poor conditions and is scared that an accident could occur like a fire. Juan Leonardo has been an employee in a customs office for 20 years working as a traffic agent and his wife works as a house cleaner. The salary that Juan Leonardo earns pays for the loan, and Maria Magdalena's income covers household and schooling costs.

They hope to improve their girls' inheritance and that they have a home in better conditions when the grandchildren arrive.

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.
