Paulina is married and has a daughter who's still in preschool. She's 34 years old, and she's a teacher and a college student. The house where she lives is still under construction. With the money from this loan she'll purchase cement, rods and sand so that she can build another bedroom and a kitchen, since the house only has one bedroom and a living room. In the future she intends to build a little private school. Finishing college is her biggest challenge. That way she'll upgrade her career status and get a fairly decent salary so she can achieve her plans.

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.
