A loan of $1,025 helped construction of a bedroom.


Idalia's story

Idalia H. G. 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.

Mrs. Idalia H. and her husband Sergio Del Toro want to finish building a room in their house. As you can observe, they already have part of it but they wish to finish it as soon as possible as the house has only one bedroom. Idalia is pregnant and is about to give birth. They also have another child who is growing and would like his privacy. She is requesting a quantity of $1,025 dollars.

Idalia works in a factory as an operator and her husband works as a craft teacher in a secondary school in the region.
