Mr. Bunny N., 36, and his wife, Mrs. Chanthy Koy, 30, who live in a small village across the Mekong River about 20 kilometers from Phnom Penh, were married in 1995 and have four children; one son and three daughters. Three of their children study in local school and the youngest one is at home, yet too young to begin school.

Bunny has been a mechanic for almost 20 years, having learned his skill in Phnom Penh, while Chanthy has been a silk weaver for three years, a skill she learned from her neighbor. Currently, the couple lives with Chanthy’s parents; Bunny is requesting a loan of $900 to add to their own money in order to buy a house for the family.

MAXIMA Microfinance Plc is a Cambodian microfinance institution founded in 2000 to help low-income rural and urban people and small- to medium-sized businesses (SMEs) access financial services. Sustainable access to credit helps to create jobs and enables business owners improve their living conditions, educate their children, provide health care to their families, and more. It also enables the rural poor to remain at home with their families, rather than moving to city centers in search of employment.

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.
