Sean, a citizen from a rural village located in Prey Chhor district, is 47 years old and lives with her husband and her five children, four of whom are employed at various occupations, so only the youngest one is still dependent on her. For more than thirty years, Sean has been farming rice on two small pieces of land in Kampong Cham province. With the current business, she can earn a small income that is very low for her monthly expenses, so her husband supplements their income by working as a paid laborer.

She, along with her husband, decided to request a loan of $1,500 for home renovation. She will buy wallboard to replace her thatched wall and also buy floorboards, and will build a ladder. She hopes that the loan will be granted to improve her shelter, so she can provide her family with a comfortable and safe place to live in.

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.
