A loan of $600 helped a member to repair their old house.


Kim's Group's story

Mr. Kim S., 55, has been selected to be leader by the other two members of the group; they are all people who live in Phnom Penh City. Mr. S. is married with two single children who are employed, and are garment workers in a factory. His wife earns a living selling fresh fish in the local market.

In the last three years, S. has become skilled in the business of building houses, and is earning approximately $3 per day. The family's living conditions are not so comfortable because their house often cracks during the rainy season. Because of the obstacle, Mr. S. would like a loan from Kiva in order to repair their old house. The loan will help the family attain a better standard of living.

The other two borrowers are:

Mr. B., 34, who is a local building worker, and is looking for a loan to decorate his house.

Mrs. S., 39, who works as a construction worker and she applies for a loan to repair her house.
