Walther Mauricio
Walter is a photographer by profession. He has been working in this trade for more than 16 years in order to get his family ahead in life. Walter is married and has three children. His wife sells clothes and together they support each other so that they are able to balance their expenses.

Walter has been able to improve his home through loans from Afodenic. This is his eighth loan cycle. He has used all of his loans to improve the infrastructure of his home and this has been of great benefit to his family.

As a father, Walter would like a better home for his children. For this reason, he pushes himself to work more and more every day, acquiring more customers and visiting more places, as there is a lot of competition.

What Walter will do with this new loan is replace his door and window with grilles as they are very old and worn. He will also buy a toilet to achieve better hygiene for his household.

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.
