Erlona's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to make some repairs at their shelter by the parents of two little children’s so it will be safer and warmer.

Erlona's story

Erlona and her husband Agustin are a couple of villagers in their 40s who are hoping for Kiva lenders’ support to make some repairs at their family shelter so it will be safer and warmer, especially for their two little daughters.

“Since the earthquake of November we have been living outside in a tent, hoping to have the governmental support to repair our house, but until now we haven't received anything and we can not continue to let our daughters live outside. We hope we can have your support so we can make the repairs needed so we can live again at our home!" said Erlona during the interview.

Erlona and her husband practice different agricultural activities to provide for their family.

When the couple was informed that they would be photographed to be posted on Kiva they got all dressed up so they would be presentable in front of their lenders.
