The woman’s in the photo is Bun, a housewife and a mother of a grown up child, living together with her family in Reussey Keo district, Phnom Penh. She is 44 years old and married to her husband who owns and runs a Tuk-Tuk business, providing transportation services to people living in the surrounding areas. Although the occupation does not allow him to make a consistent income daily, he is lucky to generate $10.00 a day on average.

She has requested a loan from Kiva lenders in order to buy house-building materials like cement, sand, and other needed materials for partially repairing her house. Bun wanted to give her family a proper house in which to live. She is thankful for the loan that will allow her to achieve her dream.

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.
