Nut is 42 years old and is one of the residents who has been residing in Prey Chor district of Kompong Cham province. Her daily business is to sell pork through the commune from her bicycle. She is married and blessed with four children attending school.

Presently Nut is preparing to start constructing her house. However, Nut needs some additional construction supplies to have it done. So now Nut decided to take out some funds from HKL, one of Kiva's partners, to purchase timbers for this construction. Nut hopes to have a suitable house for comfortable living.

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.
