Mr. C. Krey, 26, is single and lives with his parents along National Road Number 5 about 17 kilometers from Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia. C. has one sister who is a garment factory worker. His parents are farmers.

He has been a construction worker since 2006. The walls of his house break down and it’s difficult for his family to live, especially when the rainy season comes. Therefore, C. is requesting his first loan of $500 in order to buy wooden materials to repair the wall and fill up the land of his house.

MAXIMA Mikroheranhvatho is a Cambodian microfinance institution founded in 2000 to help low-income rural and urban people and small- to medium-sized businesses (SMEs) access financial services. Sustainable access to credit helps to create jobs and enables business owners improve their living conditions, educate their children, provide health care to their families, and more. It also enables the rural poor to remain at home with their families, rather than moving to city centers in search of employment.

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.
