Maria Del Socorro
Sra. María del Socorro wants to install a bathroom in the lower part of her house. The existing bathroom is in on the upper floor, so it is inconvenient for anyone on the lower floor who has to use it. She has a place set aside near the staircase. By taking advantage of this space, the cost of the project will be cheaper since there is less that has to be built.

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.
