Marjorie Suseth
Majorie is 24 years old and is the single mother of two young children. For her, things have been difficult, but not impossible, now that she has gotten ahead with her studies, primarily with the support of her parents. When she finished her studies, she began sending out resumes and began working in a bank.

She remains with the same company because it provides regular work which allows her to be able to pay her personal expenses, such as supporting her son. She lives with her mother, but she has her own room, which she wants to improve. There are wooden walls and she wants to install concrete ones, so she needs to buy stone, sand, cement, and iron in order to begin the work. This will allow her and her children to have privacy.

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.
