Yeoun
Yeoun, aged 35, is an experienced farmer from a rural village in the Baray district of Kampong Thom province. She lives with her husband and child in their own home. With the help of her husband, Yeoun is engaged in the cultivation of rice, yams and other seasonal crops. In each harvest season, local traders always come to the village to buy agricultural products from local villagers. Agribusiness is the sole source of the family's income. Since she doesn't have a safe latrine for use at home, she is unable to help her family members improve their sanitation and personal hygiene. Therefore she has requested a loan of US$560 to build a household latrine and buy its necessaries. The water loan program offered by HKL with a special interest rate has helped to encourage Yeoun to focus on ensuring healthy living conditions to safeguard the health of her family and protect the environment.

More information about this loan

This loan is part of HKL's new water and sanitation loan program designed to help improve living standards of poor and low-income people living in Cambodia.

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.
