In Cambodia, Habitat for Humanity’s MicroBuild meets with a family to discuss a microfinance loan for their home. This year MicroBuild is celebrating five years of support for lending to low-income families, who could not access traditional bank loans, to purchase new housing or upgrade their existing homes. OPIC financing has enabled MicroBuild to reach even more borrowers. OPIC made its first $45 million loan to MicroBuild in 2012, followed by additional $45 million in 2015. MicroBuild has used OPIC financing to help thousands of families in 19 countries, from Azerbaijan to Cambodia.

Congratulations to MicroBuild on five impactful, successful years.
