Mrs. Sok R., age 69, works making Khmer traditional cakes and selling them to the people in her area, making on average around $4 each day in revenue. (She is too shy to be photographed, so her house is shown instead.) Her husband works as a carpenter and generally earns about $3 per day. They have four children who are married and live elsewhere. She would like to request a loan of $800 in order to repair her house. This will improve the quality of life for her family and allow them to work better.

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.
