A loan of $475 helped build a porch.


Candelaria's story

Candelaria is 41 years old, single, and has been working as a nursing assistant in Asunción Hospital for several years. She is a single mother of 2 children: the eldest, Oscar, attends college and works, and he also supports his mother with household expenses, Yubelki, is 11 years old and in elementary school.

Candelaria is requesting her seventh loan with the goal of building a porch in her home. Her house was built by a project with Caritas but the rain has wet the front wall, so she wants to protect her house with a porch to prolong its lifespan.

Candelaria is very grateful to AFODENIC and Kiva since her previous loan allowed her to complete her dream of having her own home. She was able to install basic services (water and electricity), build her own kitchen, and live in her own house with her children. Even though the house lacks protection, she hopes to gradually accomplish this with the help of AFODENIC and Kiva.
