A loan of $750 helped construction of a porch.


Alicia's story

Doña Alicia is 43 years old, married, and has 2 children. Her oldest child helps with the household expenses, while the other child is a 12 year old student. She has the support of her husband. Doña Alicia has worked as a nurse at Asuncion Hospital for 17 years.


She is requesting her 8th loan in order to improve her house by adding a porch. It should be mentioned that her previous home improvement loan was used to install a ceramic tile floor, but this is the first time her loan has benefited from Kiva funding.


Doña Alicia’s greatest dream is to continue improving her house because it is the only family asset that she has to pass on to her children when she is gone.
