A loan of $1,500 helped to buy house-building materials to repair her house.


Bun's story

The woman’s in the photo is Bun, a housewife and a mother of a grown up child, living together with her family in Reussey Keo district, Phnom Penh. She is 44 years old and married to her husband who owns and runs a Tuk-Tuk business, providing transportation services to people living in the surrounding areas. Although the occupation does not allow him to make a consistent income daily, he is lucky to generate $10.00 a day on average.

She has requested a loan from Kiva lenders in order to buy house-building materials like cement, sand, and other needed materials for partially repairing her house. Bun wanted to give her family a proper house in which to live. She is thankful for the loan that will allow her to achieve her dream.
