Lonh R. is a 35 year old married mother who currently lives in the province of Battambang. She is a local chef, and is always hired by neighbors to cook meals for their wedding parties and other ceremonies. Her husband works as a soldier as well as a motor taxi driver in his community. The family includes three devoted children, all of them single.

Lonh R. said that she wishes to build a new house for her family, but she lacks the funds. To solve this problem, Lonh R. would like a loan of $1100 in order to purchase some pieces of wood to build her new house. Lonh R. was not available the day of the photo, so her husband is in the photo instead.

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.
