She buys her farm supplies in the city which is an hour away from her house; and to get there she must walk along country lanes until she reaches the bus stop, as where she is there are no buses. She is sometimes accompanied by one of her sons or she goes alone, as her partner works in the fields and also at night as a security guard.
The loan she is requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy tiles and rafters to improve the roof of her house as winter is approaching and she urgently needs to carry out these repairs otherwise they will get wet. Also she wants to buy sand and cement to repair the floor of the pig sty. She does this so that her children can live safely and not get sick and to care for her pigs in a clean and comfortable place.
Los insumos agrícolas, los adquiere en la ciudad que esta a una hora de su casa; pero para llegar ahí debe caminar por veredas hasta llegar al punto de autobuses; debido a que en ese lugar no hay transporte publico. Ella es acompañada por uno de sus hijos o a veces sola, ya que su esposo trabaja en el campo y por las noches trabaja como seguridad.
El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundacion Campo, es para comprar teja, vigas y mejorar el techo de su casa ya que se aproxima el invierno y le urge realizar estas reparaciones sino se mojaran y comprar arena y cemento para reparar el piso de la galera donde están los cerdos. Esto lo hace con el objetivo de sus hijos vivan más seguros y no se enfermen y cuidar a sus cerdos en un lugar limpio y cómodo.

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.
