Uon
Uon is a 32-year-old married woman with three dependent children. She has small pieces of farmland and grows rice to earn a living. She has been in this occupation in Pursat province for 11 years and has been the main source of her family’s income. Her husband and children encourage her as her motivation in this business.

Uon has requested a loan in the sum of 1,000 US dollars to build a latrine for her household as she considers that it’s one of the key elements to healthy living. By having a latrine for her household, she can keep her environment clean, protect herself and her family from spreading diseases and increase their personal hygiene. She is very happy and thankful, because with this loan purpose, HKL has provided her a special interest rate rather than its general loan.

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.
