Maria De La Luz
María de la Luz works selling ice cream and other frozen products. Because it is the hot time of year, her sales are excellent. Her husband Gerardo works as a mechanic in a workshop in the city.

The two of them live in the home of Irene, who is the mother of María de la Luz. This is why they wish to undertake this project, which involves building and installing windows and floors, as well as plastering the house. She will build a larger sleeping area, as they are sleeping in a very small bedroom.

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.
