Mrs. Ruth is a trader and a married mother of 6, one of whom is still in school. She lives in a house she owns and also supports her mother-in-law and a stepson.

With this loan she will buy cement, sand, stone and rods for the construction of her house.

Her dreams are to finish building her home and to build aviaries to begin raising chickens as a way of reinforcing her family's income.

She says the main challenges she has faced around finishing the construction of her home are financial ones and that she will request further loans to make her plans a reality. She would be grateful to Hluvuku if they could start a savings scheme.

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.
