Juana Elvira
Juana is an enterprising woman. She is 34 years old, a single mother and lives in Santiago with her family.

She has 2 children for whom she always has fought, despite being a single mother and without anyone's support, to offer them a better quality of life.

Since she was 14 years old, she has worked as a worker on a large farm in the area, which is going very well for her since she is a very responsible, hard-working, and honest person with a strong desire to improve herself.

Juana is very grateful to the Kiva lenders because, with the support they have offered her, she will be able to remodel her home such as plastering the walls and fixing the roof so that her family can feel comfortable and safe in their home.

About Caja Rural Señor de Luren

Caja Rural Señor de Luren is a microfinance institution based in Ica in southern Peru that primarily promotes the development of the country’s agricultural sector through lending. Today, it also offers credit for consumers, microenterprises and housing improvements, and has expanded its financial services to promote micro-savings and provide micro-insurance. This institution has been instrumental in helping borrowers recover from the devastating earthquake in the Ica region in 2007, and works with Peru’s National Bank to reach some of the poorest and most remote microfinance clients in the country.

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.
