Mr. Vuthy T., 38, and his wife, Mrs. Vanna Khorn, 38, live along the Tonle Basac River, a tributary of the nearby Mekong, about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penn, the capital city of Cambodia. They were married in 1982 and have six children: five sons and one daughter. Two of their children work in a soft drink company, two children are in school and another one is still too young.

Vuthy and his wife have been farming for twenty-two years. They grow green beans and cantaloupes and other food crops on their farmland. Vuthy is asking for his second loan of $1,000 in order to build a restroom for use of the family. Another part of the loan will be used for his farming business.

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.
