Celina Del Carmen
Through her hard work, she has managed to build a cinder block home. It has always been her dream to live on her own with her daughter. She also works in small-scale agriculture, and is learning to make vegetable gardens.
She is requesting this loan through Fundación Campo, which will be used to pay for sand, cement, and labor costs towards pouring a concrete floor in her home. In time, she will be able to pave it in bricks. She will also invest in the construction of a daub-and-wattle / wood frame kitchen, which will go alongside her home.
With this loan, her home will be more convenient. By having the kitchen, she will be able to avoid suffering from a variety of respiratory illnesses. She dreams of improving her home, a little at a time; she is still missing a containing wall and a perimeter fence. She also wants to finish her studies and continue to support her daughter.
Con esfuerzos ha logrado construir una casa de bloque, pues siempre había soñado vivir aparte con su hija. Trabaja en pequeña escala en la agricultura y hoy esta aprendiendo hacer huertos caseros (hortalizas)
El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar arena, cemento y pago de mano de obra, para fraguar por dentro de la casa y tener el piso encementado, y con el tiempo poder enladrillarla, también invertirá en la construcción de una cocina de bahareque y de tablas, para tener la cocina, a la par de la casa.
Con el financiamiento, tendrá una mejor comodidad, a la vez con la cocina evitara de cierta manera padecer de enfermedades respiratorias.
ella sueña poco a poco ir mejorando la vivienda, pues aun le hace falta un muro de contención y una cerca perimetral y terminar sus estudios y seguir apoyando a su hija.

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.
