Jose Marbin
Marvin studied only through 1st grade. His wife helps out with the little she receives from her work. They have just 2 children; the elder is in the 8th grade, while the younger is underage and doesn't study yet. Marvin has been a soldier for 13 years. He decided to undertake this work due to his family's needs and their economic situation. In addition, he is a day laborer. Marvin will arrive at his house [to undertake the work] in 2 weeks.

He intends to use the loan to reconstruct their home because it is in very bad condition, purchasing sheeting and lumbar and paying day laborers. As a result, his family will live better.

Marvin intends to continue helping his family and, above all, his children, so they can get ahead and become professionals. He also wishes to help his wife so that she can dedicate herself full time to her work as a beautician.

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.
