Young Jesús Alexander has lived in Managua for the last 21 years. He’s married and has two people in his care. He’s had a steady job for two years working as a hygienist in a state institution.

He came by Ceprodel to request a loan in order to buy building supplies like metal sheeting and roof purlins to repair his roof at home that’s in poor condition so that he can provide better living conditions for his family.

“I’m hoping for whatever support Kiva-Ceprodel can give to people who need these loans to continue meeting their needs and I’m grateful for this opportunity you are providing,” he says.

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.
