Dek and her husband also support their four children who are enrolled in school.
Dek is not comfortable because her house often needs to be repaired. She would like a loan from Kiva to repair her old house. And in the future, Dek hopes that all of her children study at as high a level as they can.

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.
