Suon is 56 years old and a married woman with two children, who are living with her and her husband in their own home situated in Baray district, Kampong Thom province. Suon earns a living by farming rice and cassava on more than 1 hectare of farmland. Her husband is also in the same career and helps her manage their farm. Together, they are able to make a suitable income of 20,000 KHR [Cambodian riels] per day, which they usually use for daily meals and school allowances for their children.

Suon would like to renovate her house in order to provide her family members a comfortable living, but she has insufficient capital to make this happen. In this particular way, she is asking for a loan in the sum of 2,000,000 KHR to buy wood and hire laborers to perform the construction. She is very delighted and grateful for the loan support to enable her to improve her 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.
