Everyone knows that fish is the main vital fresh food, especially for families who depend on fishing and fish selling, from the local river, where the best place for sheltering is. Huon Y., one of those people, currently depends on selling fish at the local busy market. She sells fish that she either gets from her husband’s fishing or buys from her wholesale supplier.

Huon Y. is a humble mother who has been blessed with four kids. Two of them are working, in Phnom Penh, as sewing workers. Because her house is too old and so narrow, it is not comfortable for her whole family to live in. To deal with this problem, Huon Y. would like to request a loan from Kiva to build a new, bigger wooden 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.
