Fabian is in the picture carrying one cable of his Small Solar Home System, so-called SSHS, that he had recently installed in his house where he lives with his wife and two little children. This SSHS overcomes the problem of the lack of electricity for this family. They spent money on candles and tapers for lighting, as well as disposable batteries for the radio, more money than they are paying now for the SSHS that includes 3 lamps and the connections for mobile charging and radio, which is their best means to link to the world.
Funding is asked for financing 53% of the cost of that SSHS, which will be paid back with the monthly fee that Fabian pays for maintenance services during the first year of operation.

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.
