Mrs. Srey K. (shown in the picture), 49, has been married to her new husband for nine years. She has one daughter who is a garment factory worker. The family lives in a small village outside of Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia.

Srey has been selling rice and food in front of her house for almost two years. She is able to earn 20,000.00 riel/day (about 5 USD). She is in the process of building a fence around her house, but she doesn’t have enough money to finish it. Hence Srey is requesting her first loan of US$ 1,000 to finish the fence and she will use a part of the loan to build a kitchen where she can cook.

Additional Information


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.
