Launh and his wife, Toch, are farmers. They grow rice and lotus. They are in the process of rebuilding the house they live in, but the house is not yet finished. Hence, Launh has asked for a loan of $1,000 to finish. He will also use a part of his loan to continue his farming business because it’s their main source of income.

Launh and his wife have been married since 1993 and have two children - a son and a daughter. One is a garment worker and the other is attending primary school. The family lives in a village approximately twenty kilometers from Phnom Penh city.

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.
