Suon, age 44, is married with three children. She currently lives with her family in a thatched-roof house in Kompong Speu Province. Suon, together with her spouse, has operated a rice farming business on their own farmland for almost 30 years. They can generate a decent income to pay for daily food and allowances for some of her children.

Suon is experiencing difficulties, as her house is getting old and is affected by the rain. For this matter, Suon is asking for a loan of 1,200,000 KHR for the purchase of leaves to replace her broken wall. With the remaining funds, she will build a small kitchen where she can cook and serve food for the whole family.

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.
