A loan helped to build the foundation of her own home.


Patricia's story

Patricia is a modest woman who is dedicated to her family. She works as a physical therapist, mainly in city hotels where she gives massages, facials and physical therapy. Her father gave her part of the family land so she is looking for ways to pass on a decent patrimony to her daughter, Blanca. Since she is a single mother she has been offered a Kiva loan which is only enough to build the foundation but she hopes to be able to put up walls and sheeting.
