Griselda G. G., who has two children, previously received a loan that she promptly paid back. With that loan (originally meant to be used to build a front room), she gave priority to fixing the bathroom and also to replacing the roof over the room because water leaks would get her furniture wet. Now that those improvements are complete, she would like to complete the room to expand the space in her home, and therefore allow her children some privacy when they get older. She works for the municipal government taking care of the elderly and her husband runs a primary school.

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.
