Mr. Khim is a tuk tuk (a motorcycle-based taxi) driver. He has run this service since 2008 and he makes a profit of around 10 USD each day to cover his family’s needs. Mr. Khim has a good manner and he is able to apply this good point to his clients and other people around him, so that is certainly why he increases his income from day-to-day. To generate more income, Mr. Khim’s wife is employed in the industry sector as a garment factory worker. Mr. Khim would like to ask for a loan from HKL and Kiva to repair his old house.
In the future, Mr. Khim will use any increase in income to rebuild his old house and some percentage of it to support his school-going kids to finish a high level of education.

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.
