Fernando was born in the city of Durango, but he and his mother moved to Piedras Negras twenty-four years ago when he was two years old. He later met and married his wife, and now they are the parents of two beautiful children.

Fernando has worked for an internationally recognized beverage company for four years, and his wife also earns money toward household expenses by working as a nanny caring for two children.

Fernando is asking for Kiva's support to be able to finish building an enclosing wall in the back part of his house. He worries a lot about his family's security with it not being there, particularly while he is working. Having the wall up would set his mind at ease so that he would be less worried while he is away at work.

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.
