Martin is 57 years old and lives with his wife in their own home in the District of La Matanza. His town is known for agriculture, trade, and livestock breeding. This area is located in Morropon Province, which is part of the region of Piura on the northern coast of Peru.

Martin raises sheep. His wife prepares “chicha de jora” (a beverage made from corn). She sells this product from their home since she has a considerable clientele for selling this beverage since it is traditional in the northern area.

Martin is requesting a loan of 3,000 PEN so that he can buy windows and install a subfloor in his home. The rainy season will be coming in the next few months, so these improvements will provide protection during this time.

More information about this loan

This product was created to assist Edpyme Alternativa to expand their reach into rural areas of Northern Peru in order to attend more underserved populations. Kiva funding allows the institution to access the Northern areas of the Piura, Lambayeque, and Cajamarca regions, which are generally too costly to serve and therefore less attended by financial institutions.  

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.
