I feel it necessary to ask for a loan of $1,200.00 dollars in order to install protections on my home, as there have been various robberies and I do not want this to happen to my family. I have 2 adolescent girls and my husband and I work all day.

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.
