Mr. Savoeun V., 32, and his wife, Mrs. Rany Som, 22, were married in 2004 and have no children. The family lives in a small village along National Road #5 about twenty kilometers from Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia.

Savoeun has been a driver for a garment factory for three years. He also rents his own car to the garment factory to carry goods. His wife has been selling clothes for two years. She buys them from the Olympic market, located in Phnom Penh, and resells them in front of the garment factory.

Savoeun is requesting a loan for $1000 to build a fence around his house.

MAXIMA Microfinance Plc is a Cambodian microfinance institution founded in 2000 to help low-income rural and urban people and small- to medium-sized businesses (SMEs) access financial services. Sustainable access to credit helps to create jobs and enables business owners improve their living conditions, educate their children, provide health care to their families, and more. It also enables the rural poor to remain at home with their families, rather than moving to city centers in search of employment.

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.
