María Blanca also sells bread every morning in the town centre. Her husband works in the maintenance department for a company. Both are very keen to make progress in life, and for this reason they want to do some work on their house which was damaged in the rains; it is also old. They currently have a room under construction which they could not complete because the señor had an accident in 2012. Now that he is stable again, María Blanca would like the repairs and construction finished. For this reason she is seeking a loan.

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.
