Raul Alfredo
Señor Raúl lives in the municipality of Ticuantepe with his wife and children. The plans he has for his family are to improve their living conditions. Raul dreams that 'God will give him the strength' to support his children so they become professionals, as he is a man of little means and has many impediments to giving his family a decent life. With this loan he is going to build a bathroom for his house as the current one is made of plastic and has no floor. He is going to buy cement, cement blocks, iron, sand, gravel, zinc and paint. He is grateful to Afodenic for the support given him through Kiva as it gives poor people who are eager to succeed confidence.

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.
