Fabiana's main business activity is knitting blankets from alpaca yarn. She sells to order. Fabiana lives with her husband who is a builder. When we visited, we found her knitting a blanket in her home. This activity is her main source of income.

On this occasion, Fabiana is requesting a loan to buy building supplies with which to build a room in her home so that she can live a little more comfortably. Fabiana knits around five blankets a month and, because of her good work, people make orders with her. Over time, she would like to be able to have her own knitting workshop so that she can increase her income.

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.
