Eang is 57 years old and the widowed mother of a grown-up child.

Eang permanently lives in her own home in Kampong Thom province, from which she cultivates rice and other seasonal crops to sell. She has been a farmer for over 29 years and earns a daily income of KHR 24,000 per day to cover the costs of living. Farming is the sole source of income for her family.

Since Eang’s home has deteriorated over the years, she would like to fix up her house, partially to provide good living conditions for her household. Due to insufficient capital, she is asking a loan of KHR 3,000,000 to buy wood for the job and hire laborers to perform the construction.

She is very happy and thankful for the loan support to enable her to improve her living conditions.

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.
