Rostalina is single and has three children who attend primary and high school. The youngest child hasn't reached school age yet. She lives with her children in a house that she owns. She works an 8-hour day as a service agent in a public hospital. The house where she lives isn't finished yet, that is to say, she's been building it little by little due to scarce financial resources. That's why the money from the recent loan will be used to purchase sand, cement and window frames so she can continue building her house. In the future she intends to build rooms for renting out so that she can obtain more money to support her children. In the future she'll work harder and get more loans from Hluvuku in order to accomplish her projects.

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.
