Yin is a 41-year-old farmer living with his family in Kompong Speu province. Rice farming is the primary business and source of income for his family. He grows rice on a few hectares of farmland and he is able to make a decent income to supply the household. However, the income is barely enough to cover his daily costs, so he also works as a paid laborer for additional income. Most of the villagers appreciate his hard work. Yin’s wife opened a tailoring shop in their community to help him in generating a livelihood and uplifting a better standard of living.

Recently, Yin has hired a few laborers to perform the construction in renovating his present house but he has insufficient capital. Therefore, he is applying for a loan in the amount of 1,000 USD to purchase supplies needed for the construction. Yin has nevertaken a loan with HKL before and it will be his first loan. He promises to pay it back in full.

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.
