Srun L. is 28 years old and a resident of Phnom Penh City, Cambodia, where she has been running a business as a Khmer cake seller for three years. Her business is now going well, and she has a lot of regular customers come to buy her product, because she is skilled in communication in the village.

As the another source of daily income, her husband works as a truck repairer. He earns around $5 a day. The couple lives with one child, who is minor and enrolled in school. The family has been building its house for a long time, but the house is lacking the spare parts needed.

Right now, L. needs a loan to purchase more wood and furniture to decorate her house.

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.
