Ramón has been in this locality for 20 years, and ever since he arrived, he has fought to obtain his house. His first loan was to acquire his home and now, since he has it, he wants to invest in it. This will make two loans that he has obtained from our institution. His desire is that someday it will be his children’s inheritance. His children do not live with him, but rather with his wife, from whom he has been separated for several years. He has the idea of building an enclosing wall around his house, since there is a lot of insecurity today. He lives alone, and his biggest fear is that one day someone robs him of all the things that he has acquired with the effort of all these years.

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.
