Noun
Noun, pictured here, is a construction worker. His wife, Thoun, stays at home and does housework. The couple lives along the Tonle Basac River, a tributary of the nearby Mekong, about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penn City. They have four daughters.

Noun is requesting a Kiva loan to improve and organize his house by building a brick room. He has decided to request another Kiva loan for the purpose of laying brick and plastering the ceiling and wall to visually enhance his home.

About MAXIMA

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.
