Marybel De Lourdes
Maribel’s a single mother; she has two children who are 8 and 10 years of age she must support. She lives in the La Fuente neighborhood and she works selling food. This is her only source of income and it’s difficult because her children have needs that sometimes, as a single mother, she’s unable to meet. One of the many needs at Maribel’s home is her house’s infrastructure which is wood and over the years has been deteriorating. The loan she’s requesting is to erect a concrete wall that will make it possible for her to little by little improve her house’s security for her children.

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.
