Mr. Chinda D. and his wife, Mrs.Thida Rous (pictured together), live along the Tonle Basac River, a tributary of the nearby Mekong River, about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penn, the capital city of Cambodia. They have been married since 1991 and have five children: two sons and three daughters. Three of the children attend school and other two are still young.

Chinda and his wife have been selling flowers and bananas for more than twelve years. They buy bananas and flowers from villagers and transport them to sell in the Phnom Penh market. Chinda wants to expand the house where he lives in order for it to be larger for family members to stay. So, he is requesting a loan of $1,000 to use for the project.

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.
