Rosa Argentina
Rosa still works as a social promoter in the community where she lives because this job gives her personal satisfaction and she’s able to help many children living in poverty.

Through these loans she’s managed to do some home improvements. Her family supports each other; her husband continues working as a photographer and her daughter, who works as a physician, also helps out economically.

She used the previous loan to replace the roof and build concrete walls. Now, with this new loan she will start adding a room to the rear of the patio for more space and privacy since her three children still live at home.

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.
