Felicidad is single, 28 years old, and has two children. She lives in the Barrio Naranjal urban zone within the town of Chimore. She is hardworking, humble, enterprising, and above all responsible, because despite all the obstacles that have gotten in her way she has never given up and has progressed with her family by her side.

Currently, she works farming papaya and has some farmland in the La Jota sector, which is located 10 kilometers from the city of Chimore. She obtained this land by working starting at a very young age and with the support of her parents who are now very old. Therefore, she wants to pay her parents back what they gave her. She plans on doing this by taking out this loan to repair the house where her parents live along with her and her family.

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.
