Bun is 31 years old and a married woman living in Ang Snoul district. She earns a living by sewing clothes for a garment factory in Phnom Penh city. She earns a decent salary to spend on food and daily allowances for her young kid attending school. Bun’s husband also works for a small company to support his family.

Bun wants to have this loan to fix her present house because recently it’s suffered from the rain. Her house was built on the lower part of the land, and the water often comes into her house when there is a big rain. To solve the problem, she is asking for a loan to purchase building supplies such as cement, sand, and small stones to make a concrete floor. This will protect the family, especially during the rainy season.

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.
