This is the first time for Yunly to be a Kiva borrower and appear on the website. She is a resident of Kang Meas district, where she and her spouse help each other cultivate land for growing rice. Yunly has taken a loan for USD 2,000 to build a latrine for her household. She will buy construction materials needed and pay for labors costs. This will enable her to build a healthy family and protect her family members from unexpected illness.
She is grateful for the loan granted through HKL, which has a much lower interest rate than the usual for this kind of loan product.

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.
