Lucia is 26 years old, and married with a child living in Masindi–Uganda. She has been a teacher for 8 months. Her parents inspired her to become a teacher since they were both in the same profession.

Like all government employees she has a low salary while her dreams are to upgrade her studies, build a permanent house for her residence and venture into a retail shop business. Lucia intends to use the loan to buy cement and sand to construct her residential house.

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.
