Silvia's story

Silvia is a widow, and one of her daughters lives with her along with her family. She is requesting a loan to make some improvements to her house, which needs some finishing work on the exterior including plastering and special exterior paint. Silvia has already taken 2 loans through Kiva which she has paid back on time with the income she earns caring for children, work that she has been doing for more than 3 years.

Silvia wants to improve the property that her husband left her. For this reason she hopes to rely on your cooperation with this new loan that she will use to make improvements to her house.
