Ana Celia
Señora Ana Celia is a widow, and works in the neighboring city of Laredo Texas cleaning a house. She is requesting a loan to help finance the purchase of a home (to pay the difference between the cost of a house and a government loan.) The home she lives in now is rented and the owners have asked her to move out of the property, but she has no place to go, and the houses that are currently available have very high rents. For this reason, she decided it would be better and more secure for her to own her own home.

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.
