A loan of $1,200 helped rental house repairs.


Kang's story

Mr. Kang S., 66, is a landlord who rents houses to the people from the countryside who come to work in the city. He has been in a business since 1993 and he can make around US$3 a day in revenue. His wife has started her own business selling rice and a variety of Khmer foods to the people in her community, earning around US$5 of net income. Mr. Kang S. has five children, four of whom are married and live outside the family home. The fifth is unemployed and lives with his father.

Mr. Kang S. has recently requested a loan from KIVA via CREDIT MFI to repair his rental house to satisfy his tenants. He also plans to use the loan to purchase a ton of rice from growers for resale for a profit when the rice price goes up.
