His wife is a farmer who also works every day of the year to maintain her field. His children attend school and help with the farming activities. The place where he currently lives is too remote to access transportation to school. As a result, his children always arrive late and on some occasions they don’t go to class.

Juan is requesting a loan so that he can finish the construction on his small plot of land so that his children can have a place where they can live and study comfortably.

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.
