Arlindo is married and the father of four children, all of whom attend school. He lives in his own house with his family and provides for two nephews who live with him.

He makes a living as an electrician and with this loan he intends to buy construction materials (cement, sand, stone and others) to enlarge his house.

In the future he wishes to get his driver's licence and to invest in his children's studies. For this, he is committing to paying the loan in order to request more from Hluvuku.

The challenge for him is to find a new market for his profession, so he can increase his monthly income.

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.
