Jose Manuel
View original language description ↓
Jose Manuel D. L. M. is in the process of applying for home improvement assistance through a Mexican government program called Conavi. Conavi assists very low-income families by providing a small housing improvement subsidy that supplements a housing loan.

This Kiva loan can thus have a big impact, since it is supplemented by additional funds that this low-income family will use to improve their housing circumstances.

"My name is Jose Manuel D. L. M.. I am married and I have two children. My mom also lives with us and we need to construct in our home a wall since there is a lot of insecurity. We also need to finish the repairs on a bathroom because the one we have is very small and has a lot of humidity. For lack of money, we have not been able to finish these projects. For this reason we are requesting this support. I work in a warehouse of Coca Cola and my wife is an operator in an assembly plant. We both have some years working here."

Translated from Spanish by Jay Osborne, Kiva volunteer
