Horacio Israel
Horacio Israel A.’s plans for his family are to better the conditions of life for his children and to give them a better situation. He built a wall in the rear part of his home which he wants to use to raise it more, and so to make a room to extend the house, and to be larger like his family. He needs materials for the flagstones and to pay labourers. His house is public housing and so it is very small and he wants to make it bigger, little by little, but first one thing and later the other.

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.
