Edith faces challenges in her business such as having to get up very early in order to go drop off her products. She is going to use the profits on the purchase of supplies to continue improving in her business and to be able to further expand and thus to be able to save and get ahead. Edith’s wish is to be able to open her shop where she can offer her products.
Edith is a young person with a desire for improvement. She feels happy and grateful to the institution for the support provided.

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.
