Kunthy (shown in the photo), 48, and her husband, Sok, 40, are fishermen and rice farmers. They live along National Road number five, about twenty kilometers from Phnom Penh. They have two sons and one daughter. Two are garment workers and another one is married and lives in separate home.

Kunthy is asking for a loan of $600 to fill-up the land of her house foundation and to bury a highway drainage pipe because the house where she lives needs a more functional water system.

Additional Information


MAXIMA Microfinance Plc 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.
