View original language description ↓
My name is Leopoldo R. C., and I am 70 years old. I am a security guard for a company. My wife is name Nicolasa. We have a small house, where we want to raise a fence in the front of the house for our protection since we are older people. In place of this, we have some wooden platforms. Also, we need a cement floor, and with this project we want to achieve it.

Leopoldo R. Garcia 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

Translated from Spanish by A. Shah, Kiva Volunteer.

“Mi nombre es Leopoldo R. C. tengo 70 años y soy guardia de seguridad de una empresa, mi esposa se llama Nicolasa y esta es mi casita queremos levantar una barda en el frente, para protección de nosotros ya que somos unas personas mayores y en lugar de esta tenemos unas tarimas de madera; también necesitamos un piso de cemento y por medio de este proyecto queremos lograrlo.¨
