Agustina and her family arrived to their community located in Oaxaca, Mexico 8 years ago.
She is a housewife and she loves to prepare and give personal growth talks to her friends and members of the community. She is 43 years old and her husband Juan Gabriel is 41 years old; he is the provider of the family income.
Agustina and Juan Gabriel have two daughters: Tania (20) and Soraya (17). Soraya is married to Alexis (21) and their son is Barack (3). Alexis is a hard-working young man but his wage is barely enough to help his wife and son.
Tania goes to school and Soraya helps her mom to do different chores at home and takes care of Barack.
Mr. Juan (55) is Agustina´s brother. Unfortunately, he has been sick since he was young and he is afraid of photos. That´s why you can´t see his face.
All of them are looking for a better future. Their priority is to own an adequate house with proper roof, windows and good structure because they do not want to suffer the weather conditions like they do living in the current house.
The second dream they want to accomplish is to start their own business. They do not know what kind of business but are looking for one in which all the members can participate and work.

About Habitat for Humanity Mexico

By working with Kiva, HPHM is able to grow the size of its housing loans, supporting families and individuals that it would otherwise have to decline.
This Kiva loan will be used to provide borrowers with needed goods or services, as opposed to cash or financial credit.
