Francisco López Ávila wants to put up a higher wall for protection. He tells us that there have been many robberies in the area, and he doesn't want to risk losing part of the wealth he has worked so hard to create. He would also like to install a more solid floor in the rear of his house, since during the rainy season his current floor becomes very muddy. He is requesting a loan of $6,500 Mexican pesos to carry out this project.

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.
