She had a good credit history and repaid her loans successfully. She is asking for a new loan of USD 1,000 to build a hygienic latrine for her family members, as she doesn't have one at home. Thanks to the water loan program with a special rate that is offered by Hattha Kaksekar Limited (HKL), Vantha has been 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.
