A loan helped to repair her house.


Maria's story

Maria is 60 years old and married. She and her husband are already retired. Even though they are retired, they continue to work because their pension is low and is not enough for their maintenance.

Over the years, the exterior walls of their house have deteriorated. The rains from this summer created head problems for this family with the water rising to the ground of their home. That’s why, the facade of their home requires urgent capital repairs. Even though they work hard, they do not have enough financial resources to do this work.

Maria found out about Kiva from a relative who benefited from a Kiva loan and is very grateful. Maria also makes an appeal to this offer and hopes to be credited. She wants a lot the walls of the house to be repaired and strengthened, otherwise it’s a risk for the house to be demolished.

It helps families improve their living conditions and reduce energy consumption.
