Carlos is requesting another loan with us so that he can finish building some rooms that he started to build with previous loans. He is requesting a loan to finish the bedrooms that he's building for his 3 children, because he has 2 girls and a boy, and they need their own space and privacy in the house.

Carlos has been an employee of a jewelry store for more than 10 years, and his wife does a variety of cleaning jobs in private homes in the neighboring city of Laredo, Texas. With both of these incomes, they share responsibility for the household and educational expenses.

Carlos plans to pay off this loan with the salary he receives from his job, since his wife's income covers the household expenses.

They hope that soon their children will have their own space in the house, and that they will have an improved property.

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.
