This is a 51-year-old woman and a resident from a peaceful village of Santuk district, Kampong Thom province. Her name is Thoeun. She's married with three grown-up children, two of whom who are studying at universities. Thoeun and her husband are working as farmers with a lot of agricultural activities, including growing rice, cassavas, and breeding poultry. She has been in this field for almost 30 years.

She is now asking for a loan, which enables her to build a household latrine to improve their general living conditions. The water loan program, offered by HKL with a special interest rate, has helped to encourage Thoeun to focus on ensuring healthy living conditions to safeguard the health of her family and protect the environment. She is very thankful to all lenders for their generous funds.

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.
