Jaime Javier
Jaime is 30 years old. He is in a relationship and has two children. He has devoted himself to the milling profession; he learned it from his father. He gets up at 4:00 a.m. to get himself ready to go to work since he must get to work early. Meanwhile, his wife does the housework.

The loan that he is requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy cement, iron, and bricks to construct his home. With the investment, he will be able to provide a dignified home for his family, since the house in which they currently live is made of sheet metal. One of his dreams to buy his own mill and install it in his home in order to no longer be an employee.

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.
