Chamnap (pictured above) is a weaver. She also buys finished silk products from other weavers in her village to resell in Phnom Penh market.

She has been married since 2001 and has two sons - one who is in school and the other who is too young for school. She lives in a village across the Mekong River, about twenty kilometers from Phnom Penh City. Her husband has full-time employment at a company in Phnom Penh.

Chamnap is in the process of building her new house, but she lacks the money to finish it. Hence, she has decided to ask for another loan in the amount of $1,200 to finish building her house.

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.
