Mr. Chea P. (in the photo) is 36 years old and his wife, Mrs. Mala Chhoung, is 32 years old. They have been married since 1996 and have four children: one son and three daughters. All of them are in school. The family is living in a suburb of Phnom Penh City.

Chea has been driving a motor taxi for more than five years. He drives in Phnom Penh. His wife has been a garment-factory worker for two years. Besides these occupations, the couple also operates a business by renting out a space of their house.

Chea does not have a proper restroom to use in his family, so he is asking for his first loan in the amount of $300 in order to build a restroom.

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.
