Romelia is a hard-working woman. She has been married to Manuel for 25 years. Both of them are taking care of their granddaughter.

They have been in their house for 23 years, and during this time it has deteriorated. However, what needs to change urgently is the installation of electricity. This is because they have suffered from energy shortages, which have damaged some electrical appliances.

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.
