Sandra lives in the Juancho neighborhood in a family house with her young son and her husband, who works at a petroleum company and is always traveling. She sells meat stew empanadas, grilled meats, and breads. She sells on an avenue that has a lot of traffic.

The loan will be used to buy construction materials for her house, because the house needs to have the floor installed. Thanks to her hard work and the support of her husband, they were able to buy their own piece of land, which is currently in the process of being hooked up to water services. Sandra’s wish is to see her house finished.

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.
