Youn sells fast food in her local primary school, while her husband works for a hospital. Youn’s home does not have a stair rail (shown in photo), and she is afraid of someone having an accident and falling down from the house. That’s why she decided to apply for a loan to put a stair rail on her house. She will use the rest of the loan to build a restroom for her family's use because she does not have a proper restroom.

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.
