Artemio
Sr. Artemio is 48 years old and originally from the state of Veracruz. He moved to the city of Nuevo Laredo more than 25 years ago. Artemio is married to Sra. Ernestina and they have three children who are studying. Two of them are in elementary school and the oldest one is in high school.


Sr. Artemio works for the city in the maintenance department and also has a second job as an assistant at a paint and body shop. His wife, Sra. Ernestina, works as a housekeeper at a private residence. He is requesting a Kiva loan so that he can make an improvement to his home. The front part of his house lacks a wooden roof, but he does not have the necessary funds to buy materials. Sr. Artemio will be responsible for making this improvement. He wants to improve his home for his children so that they will have a more secure place to live. While he and his wife are at work, his children will be safe at home.


With the salary he earns, Sr. Artemio will be able to repay the loan. The family and school expenses will be paid with the income Sra. Ernestina earns from her work.

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.
