Jose's work is constant. With his efforts, he succeeded in obtaining the monetary capital to build a roof for his family. "We lived in borrowed housing. Sometimes they moved us, and we did not have anywhere to go," says Jose.
Currently, he is finishing the construction of two bedrooms in the place where he will live. It is for this reason that Jose needs a loan from Kiva. He will use it to buy construction materials and finish the construction of the installation of water in a bathroom and the laundry.

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.
