A loan of $675 helped to buy cinder blocks, cement, iron, and rock sand, and to hire labor for building a room.


Rosa Josefina's story

Rosa is thirty-nine. Her husband has always worked as a gas station attendant. Their income helps support their three school-aged children. Rosa works as a janitor in an elementary school. In the past she sold cosmetics, but stopped because she wasn't making much. She'll use her loan to improve the condition of her house. This is the second loan she is seeking from Afodenic and Kiva, and she's really grateful for the support. She needs to construct a room they don't have yet, and she'll use the loan to buy cinder blocks, cement, iron, and rock sand, and to hire labor, all so her children might live in greater comfort.
