Mom
Mom is 43 years old, and her husband, Von, is 43 years old. They live in a village about twenty kilometers from Phnom Penh City. They have been married since 1990, and they have three daughters--two are garment workers, and the other one is attending school.

Mom and her husband are rice farmers. In addition, her husband also does construction work when he is not at the farm. Mom is applying for her first loan in the amount of $1,000 in order to fill in the land behind her house. There are some small ponds, so she needs to fill them in.

About MAXIMA

MAXIMA Mikroheranhvatho 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.
