Eang is at the age of 42 and a responsible mother who currently lives in a peaceful village of Siem Reap province. She has only one child who is in need of daily allowances for school. Eang owns and operates a few pieces of farmland, on which she grows particularly rice to sell each harvesting season. She has been involved in this type of business for almost six years. Her goal in life is to place her only child in a good college after he graduates from high school, so that then he will have a bright future.

At the present, Eang wishes for a loan of 500 USD to add to her capital in order to build a nice kitchen adjacent to her house where she can cook food to serve her family. She also is building a rice barn to store her grain through the year. This precious loan will enable her family to have a suitable living status.

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.
