Gloria Alejandra
Gloria is a single mother of three children, two of them in preparatory school and the youngest in secondary school. She has put a lot of effort in helping her children to have good studies so that they will be successful in the future.

She is requesting a loan to add the finishing to the exterior and interior of her house. The walls are currently deteriorated and need some repair, but right now she doesn't have enough money to make the improvement by buying the materials and paying the person that will be in charge. This improvement would protect her family from the weather, which is humid during the rainy season and could affect the health of her children.

Gloria works cleaning a private house and at nights takes care of an elderly man. She plans to use the income she earns to repay the loan. Gloria has had loans with Kiva in the past that she used to pay the education of her children. Thanks to these loans her children have been able to continue studying.

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.
