Ndoc’s family's house was in a very bad shape and he started to make major repairs some months back, but didn't have enough money to finish building it. This is the reason why he is requesting a loan now from Kiva, and he desperately needs lenders' financial assistance in this ordeal. There is an urgency to it, because winter is approaching and they have no safe place to stay.
Ndoc appreciates lenders' assistance and wants to thank each one of them in advance.

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.
