The F. family has a house in a recently built neighborhood on the south side of the city. They would like to begin making some improvements to their house, starting with the outer room, which currently just has a dirt floor. It is impossible to walk through the room when it rains, so putting in a concrete floor is essential.

Mr. F. works for a transportation company and is usually out of the city, which is why he does not appear in the photo; only his wife and one of his daughters are shown. They are a fine family and await your contribution so they can achieve their goals.

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.
