Hello, my name is Héctor Calderón V.. I am 26 years old, and I am a mechanic. I am requesting this loan because I must purchase and install windows and doors for my house since they were stolen a few months earlier. I want to install them because the insecurity is greater every day.

Héctor C. V. 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.

“Hola mi nombre es Héctor Calderón V. tengo 26 años y soy mecánico de una empresa y estoy solicitando este préstamo porque requiero de la compra e instalación de ventanas y puertas de m i casa ya que fueron robadas algunos meses atrás ; quiero instalarlas porque la inseguridad es mayor cada ves.”
