Elsa is requesting a loan to improve her house. She needs to construct a room where she can conduct her cosmotology work. To do that, she needs to purchase cement, bricks, sheet steel, sand, and other construction materials for building walls, a floor, and also to hire skilled persons to do the work. With this loan, Elsa has hopes of improving her business and offering customers a more appropriate place for conducting her beauty parlor services.

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.
