Soum
Soum, aged 42, is shown in this photo in front her own house located in Baray district of Kompong Tom province, Cambodia. She lives with her husband and some of her children there. Soum's main business is tailoring menswear, from which she is able to generate income for the household and for her daily living needs. She has been in this business for 6 years, providing her services especially to local people in her neighborhood. She is responsible for four children, one of whom is married already.

With the amount she requested, Soum would like to purchase a used wooden house (5m x 7m), from which construction supplies will be reused to renovate her present house. Soum hopes that this fund will be granted to her to better her living status. She believes that she and her family will have a suitable house and a 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.
