A loan helped to purchase a house.


Mariana's story

Mariana is 31 years old and married. She has a 6-year-old child and lives with her parents-in-law in in their house in a village. Mariana worked in greenhouses in the neighboring village, even though since she was a child, she has had a back problem and it was forbidden for her to stay bent for a long period. She tried as much as she could to help improve the family’s income, but her health worsened and she had urgent back surgery.

Mariana has a great desire: for her family to have their own home and to live apart from their parents. This is why she decided to apply for a Kiva loan to purchase the much-desired house.


This loan is special because:

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