Janeth and, especially, her husband, have worked daily for 2 ½ years now offering urban transportation services for a transport line with their own vehicle. This service is their principal source of generating income to sustain their family.
And, finally, Janeth and her husband have proven that they are responsible and hard-working people who wish to improve their conditions of life. For that reason they find it necessary to request capital to invest in construction of a home on a lot they own. In this manner, in the future, their family can have the satisfaction of living in their own home.

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.
