Maribel's home is missing a concrete slab at the front of the house and a rear wall. She is requesting a loan to buy materials (sand, cement, rods, and concrete blocks) and to pay the person who will make these improvements to her house.

Maribel works in the neighboring city of Laredo, Texas, and her husband is employed by an agency where he works in accounting. These are the sources of income they have for providing their two small children with the best and for ensuring that their legacy is safe and in good condition for them.

Maribel has had a loan with Kiva before, which was also for home improvements. She hopes she can count on your cooperation with this loan.
