Valentín Antonio
The house in which Valentín lives is lacking a wall around it.

He is requesting the loan so that he can buy the materials for it -- blocks, cement, metal bars, and sand -- and he will also pay the person whom he will hire to carry out the work.

Valentín works in a radio station in the city as an announcer. With the income he receives from his job, he will pay off the loan, since his wife, Norma, will take charge of the family's expenses and the school fees for their two children with the salary she receives for her work.

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.
