Antonio is married and has 5 children, 3 of whom are still in school. He owns the home where he lives with his family and he does not support anyone else.

He is a metalworker and plans to use this loan to purchase construction material (doors, iron, cement, blocks, sand, etc.) in order to continue construction on his home. In the future he hopes to complete his home, set up a mechanic's shop in his home, and formalize his marriage. He will therefore pay his loan on schedule and request additional loans from Hluvuku.

His challenge is to increase his monthly earnings in order to carry out his plans.

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.
