Reina Elizabeth
Reina, 39, is single. She’s worked selling corn tamales, manioc, enchiladas, cakes and soft-drinks, among other fast-food snacks for about 10 years. She learned this activity from her parents who were also in this occupation. Her father is a coffee grower and her mother is a small retailer.

The loan she’s asking Fundación Campo for is to buy three truckloads of sand, three truckloads of gravel, 5 quintals of iron rods, 50 sacks of cement, 4 doors, 4 windows and to pay labor costs to build her house. With this investment, she’ll build a brick house because her current one is adobe. She plans to gradually improve it and install basic utilities like potable water, sewage disposal and electricity.

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.
