A loan of $875 helped to buy construction materials.


Cristina Del Socorro's story

Cristina lives with her husband in Concepción. He works for a private company to help pay for the household expenses since they have to support their children. Their plan is to build a house because they have been living in Cristina’s mother’s house for some years. Cristina is a farmer and she grows pitahaya (an edible cactus fruit). This doesn’t generate enough income to be able to build the house all at once, so she went to Afodenic for help. Kiva’s programs assist people with few resources so that they can turn a dream into reality, such as beginning to construct a house on a plot located near her pitahaya field. She will use the loan to buy construction materials such as iron, cement, rafters, cement blocks, roof supports, sand, gravel, etc.
