Her husband, Jesus Barraza, works as a solderer. He himself is going to put up protection and the loan is to buy the material needed (as they do not need to hire anyone as he can do it all himself). She would like $500.
Portion translated by Liz Harvey, Kiva Volunteer
Sylvia M. is in the process of applying for home improvement assistance through a Mexican government program called Conavi. Conavi assists very low-income families by providing a small housing improvement subsidy that supplements a housing loan.
This Kiva loan can thus have a big impact, since it is supplemented by additional funds that this low-income family will use to improve their housing circumstances.
Sylvia desea poner protecciones en su casa por que dice que hace un año intentaron robar en su domicilio. El ladrón al no poder abrir, se paso a la casa de un lado con los padres de Sylvia que se encontraban dormidos y así provecho y robo cosas de valor. Es por eso que ella prefiere estar más segura.
El Señor Jesús Barraza es esposo de la señora M., el trabaja como empleado de soldadura. El mismo va a fabricar las protecciones, el préstamo es para comprar solamente el material el comenta que ya no es necesario contratar a alguien si el mismo lo puede hacer. Ella solicita $500 dólares.
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.
