Nicolas Alberto
Nicolas is from New Guinea. He works as a mechanic at a nearby uncle’s shop. His wife works for the public sector. Both of them are responsible people, and they are very earnest. They do not yet have children.

He is requesting this loan to buy construction materials in order to build an annex onto his house that is being built. It is not yet ready to inhabit. That is why he very much needs to prepare a place to live provisionally with his wife. They currently live with a relative.

Nicolas has been building his house little by little, part by part, with help from his wife. His biggest ambition for the future is to finish his house in order to have a decent home and to await his children in good living conditions.

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.
