Puth, 41, lives with her two children in Ponhea Lueu District of Kandal Province. After she got divorced, she rented a booth at a local market and started a business as a vendor selling Khmer noodles in fish curry sauce. With the income she generates, she is able to cover the cost of food, bills, and other expenses.

The house that she lives in has deteriorated over the years and needs renovation. Due to inadequate capital, she has requested a loan of 1,000 US dollars to buy materials needed for home improvement and pay for labor costs. The loan will allow her family to live in a comfortable and warm place without worrying about the effects of bad weather.

She thanks the lenders for their constant support. She awaits your kindness and relies on your generosity.

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.
