Vilma Arcadia
Vilma is 58 years old and she is a single mother of five children. Many years ago she learned about agriculture from her parents. Vilma gets up at 4 am to prepare breakfast for her children before they go to work. She then gets ready to reach the lands where she plants corn and beans, located at approximately two kilometers form her house.

The loan she is requesting to Fundación Campo will be used to have the roof of her house repaired, as well as to pay for other improvements. She will thus be ready for the winter, as her house will not get wet. In the future she wants to add a room to her house as one of her children will soon get married.

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.
