Wendy Rosa
Sra. Wendy is a single mother with two children in her care. She works as a part-time teacher at the Colegio Fe y Alegría in the town of Colcapirhua, generating a salary of 550 Bs. She owns a radio taxi that she was able to acquire through the fruit of her labor. It is in good condition because she has periodic maintenance done on it. She receives an income of 90 Bs. daily from this taxi, which her brother operates as taxi-driver.

Wendy needs a small loan to refurbish her humble abode which is located in an area peripheral to the city of Cochabamba. She has come to our institution for the loan and we facilitated a KIVA loan for her and she is very grateful, especially to KIVA for channeling micro loans to people with economic needs who can use them to help improve their economic situation and gain access to a better quality of life.

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.
