José works as a day laborer. He also raises cattle and farms. He has done this for many years. His children help him economically. He lives 2 km from his fields and he walks there. His wife helps him with the cattle. He works from 6 am until 11 am.

José will finish building his house. The loan will improve the conditions of the house and thus make his quality of living better. He is satisfied with the loan as he can have a better house. José`s dreams are to continue working for his wife and to support his children as they help each other. The loan will help him as he can buy all the needed material at once.

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.
