Yam
Responsibility for the family is the big responsibility of Yam who is the head of his family. Yam rides a motorbike in Siem Reap. Every day he wakes up early in the morning to find customers so he can support his family. He can earn only $4 per day to give to his wife. Talking about his wife, she doesn’t stay at home; she has a job which involves counting money. With her patience and good characteristics, it is an easier job than others. Yam wishes to borrow an amount of $600 with the aim of repairing his old 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.
