Kiva Lending Team: Team Housebuilder
We loan because...
A lot of people really, really underestimate the difference a safe, secure home can make to someone's health, employability and financial security. If a person does not feel safe and secure, it is difficult for them to meet even their most basic of needs. Improving housing in an area also enriches the area as a whole, helps prevent people from becoming victims of crime, and gives parents a legacy for their children.
We support loans that build homes, repair homes, improve homes, or directly aid production and distribution of construction materials, be they $75 for secure windows and doors, or $1500 for a new roof and running water.
