Salomon Lino
According to his neighbors, people close to him, and colleagues, Salomon is a modest person. Currently lives in his parents home. He is 43 years old and needs this loan so that he can repair the roof of their home and this way avoid any damage to the property.

Salomon tells us that he is an accounting technician, but that he does not practice his profession. Instead he has worked as an electrician for more than seven years. Separated, for more than six years he has had a son who depends on his moral and financial support.

Now he is applying for the loan, saying that it will be a great help to him, as in the rainy season their home suffered damage and he wants to repair it so that he can have greater peace of mind and greater comfort.

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.
