A loan of $1,500 helped to buy needed materials for housing construction.


San's story

San is married and a single mother of two grown-up children. San is one of Cambodia's Muslims who currently lives in Reussey Keo district, Phnom Penh. At her age of 59, San is an industrious housewife, always taking care of her children and working for a healthy family. Her family’s income depends on her two children; her daughter, who is a garment worker, and her son, who provides tuk-tuk services around the city.

Due to insufficient capital for building a house, San is seeking a loan from Hattha Kaksekar Limited (HKL), a long-standing Kiva partner, to buy needed materials for housing construction. Just for a suitable shelter, it is going to cost USD 1,500. This loan will help prevent her family from paying a higher rent for a room and will improve their standard of living.
