All his life he has dreamed of having a dignified home that has all of the necessary amenities to give his family a better life. For this reason, he is asking the Kiva investors, through Ceprodel, for a loan that will allow him to plaster the walls of this home. He will purchase concrete and sand, and pay for labor. He has faith in God that these kindhearted investors will approve his request, letting him carry out his project.

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.
