Jackeline, 26, is a very enterprising young woman with dreams of progress. She lives in her parents' home along with her three siblings. With much effort Jackeline has been making improvements to her parents' living quarters where she lives. She works as an English teacher in her own neighborhood, ten minutes from home, where she teaches 5- to 8-year-old children. Therefore the salary she has been receiving for four years now has helped her, little by little, to be able to build her house. It has been her dream since she was little to have a lovely home, a dream she is making reality.

Now she needs to cover the walls and install the toilet and shower. She feels so happy to be able to improve her family's quality of life, and wishes to build a second story to her house so her parents may live off rental income from the same.

This is her first loan with MFP and she promises to make all the payments on a timely basis since she hopes to continue with repeated loan support. With the loan she seeks she will purchase cement and fine sand for covering the walls in her 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.
