Besides the hardships of living, Lis also wants to focus on improving sanitation practices for her entire household. That’s why she has applied for a loan to build a hygienic latrine for the sake of her family members. Thanks to the water loan program with a special rate offered by Hattha Kaksekar Limited (HKL), Lis is encouraged to focus on ensuring healthy living conditions, to safeguard the health of her family and to protect the environment.

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.
