She is a merchant in the same area. She works from Monday through Saturday, from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and she spends the rest of her time with her two children. The loan she is requesting is to improve her home, since when the father of her children left, the finishing work had not been completed on part of the home.

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.
