Juanita V. Ramirez has children who are at the age where they need their own room for their privacy. She will first use the loan for the construction of one room in the back of where she lives, and if they finish that project with money left over they will start the construction of another room on top of their home. The home is subsidized by the organization INFONAVIT, which part of a government program, and Juanita has come to our organization in order to get help to increase her families standard of living with a loan of $600 dollars.

Juanita V. works as a secretary for a Lawyer, and her husband works in a factory in the city. Her son that lives with her also works as an assistant in a shelter in order to help out with expenses, and with all of these incomes they will be able to pay back the loan.

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.
