Hong is 43 years old and married with six children. She lives in a thatched house in Prey Chor district, Kompong Cham province. She is involved in cultivating rice to generate income. Her husband also works in the same type of business and helps her manage most of the maintenance of the rice field.

Hong’s family is experiencing difficulties in their life because their house suffers from the rain when there is too much rain coming. Hong wants to renovate her house and make the family more comfortable, so she is asking for a loan of 2,000,000 riels to purchase timbers and wallboard. She hopes that this loan will be granted to her to help her family. Her priority in life is to provide further education for all of her children.

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.
