Touch P. is a thirty-nine-year-old married woman who currently resides in the middle of Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia. Touch P. and her husband are rice farmers. They manage to earn a small income by growing different kinds of crops on their farmland, such as cabbages and morning glories, which they sell to their regular customers every two or three months when the plants mature.

This couple has four single children, and most of them are studying in local schools. In the past, Touch P. has been working at rebuilding her broken fence, but it is still not complete because of lack of money. In order to finish building the fence, Touch P. would like to request some funds from Kiva to add to her personal savings to complete her fence. She hopes to use the rest of the money to buy furniture for her house.

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.
