For her, it has been difficult to make improvements in her house by herself, but she has progressed little by little with the support that Afodenic has given her through her loans, since now, with everything expensive and her earning little, it isn't possible to do a project. With this loan, she will buy construction materials to make a room in the back part of her house. Since her small house is made of blocks but the room (to be replaced) and the kitchen are of zinc and are already old, what she wants is to begin building and to be able to have more comfort as well as better hygiene. For this project, she will buy blocks, sand, iron, and cement to begin. Her goal is to complete all of her house in concrete, since (with the present zinc construction of the room and the kitchen) she is on the watch for crime every day. She is motivated by the loans, thanks to which she is is able to make a better house.

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.
