Juan De La Crúz
Juan is 23 years old. He has a partner and a son. He has been a member of his country’s armed services since 2012, a decision he made because of the lack of jobs in his community. Prior to that he farmed and was occasionally unable to find work.

He is requesting a loan from Fundación Campo to purchase cement, iron, sand, rocks, etc. in order to build his house since the one he has now is made of adobe and does not provide enough security for his family. He has part of the money he needs, which, together with the loan, will be sufficient to pay for the supplies he needs.

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.
