Justino is a hardworking and honest person who lives with his wife and their three children in southern Honduras. He makes a living growing basic grains. Justino is requesting the loan to purchase a solar panel because there is no electrical service in the community where he lives. Buying the solar panel would help out a lot in doing activities at night. Justino hopes this investment will help him improve the quality of life for himself and his family a little bit, since his children will be able to study and play more at night. He hopes in a few year that his life and economic situation will improve and he can keep supporting his children's education so they can become good people with better opportunities in society.

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.
