As a married parent of three children, Soth, aged 39, works hard to support her family. She has been operating a bread vending business in a market of her region. She has a big bamboo basket full of bread to sell from the morning until the afternoon. She is able to make a net profit of $5.00 per day on average.

Soth is borrowing a loan amounting to 1,200 US dollars to make home improvements; so that she can protect her family from the weather conditions. This will be her second loan from HKL as her previous helped her improve the general living conditions.

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.
