Vat V., 35, earns her daily income by selling a few wares, including pork, vegetables, and fish. She uses her old bicycle to sell this produce door-to-door in the village. Additionally, she and her husband cultivate rice and vegetable crops on their own farmland. The family's house is lacking some parts, since the family's financial problems have stopped them from completing its construction. Therefore, Vat V. has decided to seek a $700 loan to buy housing equipment to fill the lacking part of her house. She and her husband are in the picture.

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.
